I'm getting the following error at boot time:
Code:
"Setting the clock via the ntp client 'ntpdate' ...
Failed to set clock"

The log file looks like this:
Code:
# grep ntp /var/log/messages
Feb 20 11:48:26 gentoo ntpdate[4882]: no servers can be used, exiting

My wireless connection is started before ntp-client with wicd, but maybe the connection isn't established before the ntp client tries to set the clock.
Code:
# rc-update show
           alsasound | boot
             apache2 |      default
            bootmisc | boot
             checkfs | boot
           checkroot | boot

                dbus |      default
          fbcondecor | boot
                hald |      default
            hostname | boot
             keymaps | boot
               local |      default nonetwork
          localmount | boot
             modules | boot
               mysql |      default
         mythbackend |      default
              net.lo | boot
            netmount |      default
          ntp-client |      default
           rmnologin | boot
              serial | boot
                sshd |      default
           syslog-ng |      default
             urandom | boot
          vixie-cron |      default
                wicd | boot
                 xdm |      default
              xinetd |      default

ntp is configured like this:
Code:
# cat /etc/ntp.conf                                         
# NOTES:                                                                   
# DHCP clients can append or replace NTP configuration files.             
# You should consult your DHCP client documentation about its             
# default behaviour and how to change it.                                 

# Name of the servers ntpd should sync with
# Please respect the access policy as stated by the responsible person.
#server         ntp.example.tld         iburst                         

# Common pool for random people
#server pool.ntp.org           

# Pools for Gentoo users
server 0.gentoo.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.gentoo.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.gentoo.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 3.gentoo.pool.ntp.org iburst

##
# A list of available servers can be found here:
# http://www.pool.ntp.org/
# http://www.pool.ntp.org/#use
# A good way to get servers for your machine is:
# netselect -s 3 pool.ntp.org
##

# you should not need to modify the following paths
driftfile       /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift

#server ntplocal.example.com prefer
#server timeserver.example.org

# Warning: Using default NTP settings will leave your NTP
# server accessible to all hosts on the Internet.

# If you want to deny all machines (including your own)
# from accessing the NTP server, uncomment:
#restrict default ignore


# To deny other machines from changing the
# configuration but allow localhost:
restrict default nomodify nopeer
restrict 127.0.0.1


# To allow machines within your network to synchronize
# their clocks with your server, but ensure they are
# not allowed to configure the server or used as peers
# to synchronize against, uncomment this line.
#
#restrict 192.168.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify nopeer notrap

And /etc/init.d/ntp-client is adjusted in the following way:
Code:
depend() {
        before cron portmap
#       need net
        after net.wlan0 || after net.eth0
        use dns logger
}

After login ntp-client works fine:
Code:
# /etc/init.d/ntp-client start
 * Setting clock via the NTP client 'ntpdate' ...                                                                      [ ok ]

From my point of view it seems like the wireless connection isn't established in time during boot and ntp-client runs into timeout. How could I change the timeout setting of ntp-client?

This is a bit of a hack, but you you could simply disable ntp at boot, and try putting something like: "ntpdate tick.usno.navy.mil" in /etc/conf.d/local.start. Local should run last, so if wicd is starting, it should work...

It may be because there is too big a time difference between your rtc and ntp server.

int /etc/conf.d/ntpd you can use the -s option to set the time immediately
Code:
NTPD_OPTS="-s"

Code:
NTPD_OPTS="-s"

Doesn't help. When I start ntp-client manually at console I get the following output
Code:
Feb 22 22:14:32 gentoo ntpdate[5532]: step time server 64.73.32.135 offset -0.316384 sec

Interesting, I have the same problem, different reason, and it seems to me that it should just work, and not require a hack around to get ntp-client to run.... maybe a bug?

in my rc.log, this shows that it runs at the proper time, but fails because it claims the DNS is not available.
Code:
* Allowing Internet access ...
 [ ok ]
 [ ok ]
 * Setting clock via the NTP client 'ntpdate' ...
Name server cannot be used, exiting * Failed to set clock
 [ !! ]
 * ERROR: ntp-client failed to start


and the relevant part of /etc/conf.d/ntp-client
Code:
NTPCLIENT_OPTS="-s -b -u us.pool.ntp.org"


Anyone come across this before?

for me it is in /etc/rc.conf

I'm using openrc (baselayout2 I believe)

look for:
Code:
# /var/log/rc.log
# NOTE: Linux systems require the devfs service to be started before
# logging can take place and as such cannot log the sysinit runlevel.
rc_logger="YES"


Set to YES, the default is NO.

the log will be /var/log/rc.log

You're sure that your network is up and running and provides valid DNS responses when ntp is starting ?

It seems like the connection is established too late. I get the following error in /var/log/messages.
Code:
Feb 24 21:32:11 gentoo ntpdate[3574]: no servers can be used, exiting
But at that time, the connection isn't established as I can see in /var/log/wicd/wicd.log

You're sure that your network is up and running and provides valid DNS responses when ntp is starting ?


Thank you for asking that question, because I could not be sure until I tested it at that point in the boot process.

Well as it turned out in my case I had a script that setup my bridge (br0) and added the tap devices, it was launching prior to ntp-client and there was not enough time for it to settle for ntp-client to be happy, I forced it to launch earlier in the boot order and all is well again for me at the moment.

So it was my bad.

Thanks;

George

It seems like the connection is established too late. I get the following error in /var/log/messages.
Code:
Feb 24 21:32:11 gentoo ntpdate[3574]: no servers can be used, exiting
But at that time, the connection isn't established as I can see in /var/log/wicd/wicd.log


Is your network script launching in boot or the default runlevel?

I have my network script in boot, and by putting my bridge script in the boot runlevel also solved my particular issue.

Did you enable the rc.log ok?

Bummer, I'll take a stab at it, maybe someone else has better ideas.

You might try adding the "after" command to push it further down to say something like after samba in the depend() clause in ntp-client or just add sleep 5 or how many seconds you need for the network to become active in the beginning of ntp-client or the end of wicd.

I don't know the openrc init system well enough to know if there are any options that wait for the network to be hot.

Good hint. I will try it tomorrow.

Regarding the log wlan0 seems to need round about 25s. I will adjust /etc/init.d/ntp-client in the following way
Code:
depend() {
        before cron portmap
#       need net
        after net.wlan0 || after net.eth0
        use dns logger
# try 30
        add sleep 30
}

I'm unsure about the syntax.

you may not want to put sleep in the depend clause.

Something like this in the start clause should work.
Code:

start() {
    checkconfig || return $?
   # sleep for 30s waiting for net
    sleep 30
    ebegin "Setting clock via the NTP client '${NTPCLIENT_CMD}'"

Great, that's it. With the following line it works:
Code:
start() {
        checkconfig || return $?
# sleep for 10s
        sleep 10
        ebegin "Setting clock via the NTP client '${NTPCLIENT_CMD}'"
        "${NTPCLIENT_CMD}" ${NTPCLIENT_OPTS}
        eend $? "Failed to set clock"
}

Code:
Feb 25 18:19:35 gentoo ntpdate[3631]: step time server 64.73.32.135 offset -2.191652 sec

Seems like I can reduce the delay a little bit.

But I wonder, why the following line in /etc/init.d/ntp-client does not work:
Code:
depend() {
        before cron portmap
#       need net
        after net.wlan0 || after net.eth0
        use dns logger
}

in every case
Code:
after net.wlan0 || after net.eth0
should be written as
Code:
after net.wlan0 net.eth0

Great, that's it. With the following line it works:
Code:
 start() {
        checkconfig || return $?
# sleep for 10s
        sleep 10
        ebegin "Setting clock via the NTP client '${NTPCLIENT_CMD}'"
        "${NTPCLIENT_CMD}" ${NTPCLIENT_OPTS}
        eend $? "Failed to set clock"
}



Thank you!
That did the trick. :wink:
