2008-06-02 20:49:01     ntpd fails as daemon (works with -q flag)

I am able to set the system time using

 

ntpd -q -g -c /etc/ntp.conf

 

just fine, but when I take the -q out to run it as a daemon, I see no evidence of anything happening.  It is not listed in the process list and if I start without the correct time, ntpd never corrects it.  What's more disturbing is that nothing is logged to the logfile specified in /etc/ntp.conf.  However, when run with the -q flag, messages are logged:

 

1 Jan 07:04:21 ntpd[53]: synchronized to 192.43.244.18, stratum 1

3 Jun 00:29:16 ntpd[53]: time reset +1212427495.618442 s

 

Is there somewhere I should be looking for debug messages for a clue as to why the daemon just seems to fail before it even gets started??

 

Thanks,

 

Ben
