          Actually that second recipe never worked for me.

          I run the the /unslunc/rc.rstxxxx script at boot, and then I just have a
          cron job the syncs the clock every 20 minutes.

          I never could get the ntpclient to keep time when running in daemon mode
          (as suggested in the recipe).

          More or less I only do the top section.

            now i am confused!!!!!!

            either i use the script at the top plus cron (which uses ntpclient)
            or i use the diversion scripts at the bottom (which uses ntpclient)

            your post says you only use the top half of what? An orange?
            if you are only running the first script /unslung/rc.rstxxxx the only
            command that changes the clock is

            /usr/sbin/hwclock --adjust

            but where is this adjustment coming from and relative to what?

            as in my original post when i run
            /opt/bin/ntpclient -s -l -h pool.ntp.org
            it doesnt work..

            am i being thick!
            probably

              The Wiki looks like two different configurations to me. So when I said
              use the one on the top, I meant use the one that looks like option 1.

              In /opt/etc/crontab I have the following entry:
              0/20 * * * * root /opt/bin/ntpclient -s -l -h a.b.c.d > /var/log/ntp.log
              && hwclock --systohc --utc

              ;where a.b.c.d is the IP of the NTP server that is on my local network.

              for /unslung/rc.rstimezone I have:

              #! /bin/ash
              /usr/sbin/Set_TimeZone >/dev/null
              /usr/sbin/hwclock --adjust
              /usr/sbin/hwclock --hctosys >/dev/null
              return 0
              # EOF - include this line

              probably not needed, but I have this for /opt/etc/init.d/S10ntpclient :

              #!/bin/sh
              if [ -n "`pidof ntpclient`" ]; then
              /bin/killall ntpclient 2>/dev/null
              fi
              /opt/sbin/adjtimex -t 10000
              /opt/bin/ntpclient -s -l -h a.b.c.d > /var/log/ntp.log
              /usr/sbin/hwclock --systohc --utc

              exit 0

              All of that other stuff at the bottom of the Wiki did not work for me.

              Either my clock got too skewed for ntpclient to sync, or this just did not
              work for me:

              /opt/bin/ntpclient -i 600 -l -h a.b.c.d >> /var/log/ntp.log &

              So I just opted for the ugly hack, which is to sync to my internal NTP
              server every 20 minutes.

                That's it.

                  Scott,

                  Ok thanks for clarifyng your approach Scott, I appreciate your time.

                  I have done exacty the same but no luck. Actually, just rebooted to
                  see if this would help but found i didnt have diversion script setup
                  for sshd so it took me some time to get back via telnet....

                  please can you run this command on your system

                  /opt/bin/ntpclient -s -l -h pool.ntp.org

                  this command hangs/goes into endless loop for me and i believe this is
                  the root of my prob as stated in prev emails


                  thanks

                        Reinstalling ntpclient (2003_194-3) on root...

                        Configuring ntpclient

                        # sudo /opt/bin/ntpclient -s -l -h uk.pool.ntp.org

                        [HANGS until CTRL-C]

                        [HANGS until CTRL-C]

                        ARGGGHHH!!!! (tried many other servers incl yours - no dice)

                        --- 0.uk.pool.ntp.org ping statistics ---
                        3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss
                        round-trip min/avg/max = 32.980/35.567/40.150 ms

                        read ntptrouble shooting section - nothing jumps out...

                        new things tried

                        1) confirmed port 123 hole in router firewall for UDP and TCP - no
                        change - ping was working prev anyway so no surprise

                        2) used ntp web browser based support check via slug browser w3m - it
                        works and receives time update via

                        #w3m http://support.ntp.org/ntpq.php

                        ARRRRGHH!!!

                                No, it probably won't. I expect you need to get ntp but only use
                                ntpdate and not the rest of the package.

                                http://ipkgfind.nslu2-linux.org/details.php?package=ntp&id=14893980&official=&format=

                                seems to have details on this package.
