#505 closed defect (fixed)

ntpclient ifup script broken

Reported by: guettli@… Owned by: florian
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.9/rc6
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


The script /etc/hotplug.d/iface/10-ntpclient checks if ntpclient is already running:

ps x | grep '[n]tpclient'

But the script itself is called '10-ntpclient' that's why /usr/sbin/ntpclient gets never called.
I changed the grep to search for bin/[n]tpclient. And I made "ifup" the default ACTION. This
way you can easily call the script from the shell without to give to "ifup" argument.

But that does'nt change anything, the problem is that the hotplug event "iface" is actualy not called. At least not at my router.
