I don't think that's my problem as I ran ntpdate twice before launching
ntpd. The second time showed an offset of only -0.000346 sec.
Also, I'm not see a log entry in messages that identifies why ntpd dies.
I get a Syslog entry with the "startup succeeded" messaged associated
with a PID for ntpd, but when I check running processes the PID is not
active (see output in my last e-mail).
Any other advice?
Thanks for the re!
