Hi,

I have a Sun Blade 100 workstation running Linux 2.4.27 and have 
compiled and installed ntpd

The computer has been running for several weeks yet the ntp.drift file 
still contains 0.000. Yes ntp.conf contains

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift

The computer was losing about 2s / hour prior.

Is there another parameter required in ntp.conf?

drwxr-xr-x   2 ntp  ntp  4096 Jan 25 12:23 .
drwxr-xr-x  11 root root 4096 Jan 24 20:23 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 ntp  ntp     6 Jan 25 12:23 ntp.drift

Thanks.
