I am having some trouble starting ntpd. When I try to start it as the default user ntp, it bombs out without leaving any messages. I tried it by hand with the following command, and saw no indication of why it didn't work:

/usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -u ntp:ntp

When I ran it as root, it worked:

/usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntpd.pid

Any ideas?

The last two posts in "ntpd -U ntp" not working with kernel 2.6 should be helpful.
