Drift file not updating

live in the So Bro neighborhood of Louisville, KY with my daughter and our cat Apollo.

I enjoy being challenged by technology problems and am fortunate enough to get paid to solve them.

Should I just point the drift file somewhere else or how can I fix this?

Here is my file: https://ptpb.pw/BLYHUpdate: I changed the owner of the file to ntp:ntp and rebooted and it still complains about formatting. The page you edited is about ntpd, which is a different implementation for NTP than systemd-timesyncd.

This is just a brief howto about installing and configuring NTPD (Network Time Protocol Daemon) on a Linux server which in this case is specifically NTPD.

First we will install ntpd, then update the current time on the server, configure ntpd to restart on server boot, and then start ntpd. Please be aware that there are many configuration options that can be added to /etc/that make it more secure and the below is a very basic configuration file.

The units for the drift file are "PPM", or "parts per million".

NTP has finer grained control than that, so we look at errors of margin using 0.0001% (0.000001, or 1 PPM).

f=11&t=233Using V140 on rpi3I see that there is no ntp drift file present in /var/lib/ntp and one does not get created there. I put a drift number into the drift file and on start up it is being read and applied.

This drift number should be written in the drift file every hour but it is not. A fluctuation of just 0.001% (0.00001, or 10 PPM) means losing or gaining about 1 second per day. Your clock will drift due to fluctuations in the frequency oscillating the quartz crystal on your motherboard.The command for ntpd is systemctl enable/start ntpd.service Not sure why people get always as defensive over these things. I can see why you'd be confused however - that page has lots of unneeded tangents. I wasn't simply telling people to use something different.The command you've added enables systemd-timesyncd. The command for ntpd is systemctl enable/start ntpd.service Not sure why people get always as defensive over these things. Timesync will use NTP ultimately, not the other way around.
