Hi again,

I tried and run "ntpd -gq"; my "new" problem is that it takes more than 1 mn 
to complete.
Considering this operation takes place when ntp service is started, this is 
too long.

So I am still in need of advice... Do I miss something in my configuration 

Here is the content of  /tmp/ntp.conf:
server mode 2
fudge time1 0.0
fudge refid GPSi

And here is the command + output:
# date; ntpd -g -q -c /tmp/ntp.conf; date
Thu Jul 12 14:44:39 CEST 2007
ntpd: time set +10.681068s
Thu Jul 12 14:45:40 CEST 2007
