Re: ntp 4.2.4-1 needs a(nother) patch
- Thanks, that seems to have fixed the interface problem.
Now that the logfile is less cluttered, we can see that ntpd is also
experienceing "kernel time sync status change 0001" messages.
This is discussed in: https://support.ntp.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=780
David Mills (the NTP architect) asserts that this is a linux kernel
It seems that some linux kernels are warning when they think that
time updates are too infrequent. David does not have such a check in
the reference code - in fact, one really doesn't want frequent
updates. (Infrequent updates mean that we're stably synchronized to
the outside world, and gratuitous updates are just overhead.)
So... looks like we need a second (er, no pun intended) fix. From
what I can tell, the right fix is in the kernel, though an ntp hack
to do gratuitous updates might be possible.
