Gentoo Openntpd Client Setup

I prefer to use Openntp to synchronize my time, it appears to be very easy to setup indeed. Here's how I get it to work with just few steps.

Installing openntpd -

shell>emerge -v openntpd

Adding two lines to /etc/ntpd.conf

shell>echo "server" >> /etc/ntpd.conf

shell>echo "server" >> /etc/ntpd.conf

Then just start it up -

shell>sudo /etc/init.d/ntpd start

Remember to change this entry in the file /etc/conf.d/clock from




Done.That's pretty quick and normally you just need to change the ntp server to your preferred one.

Enjoy :]
