Description Jeremy Chadwick freebsd_committer 2006-12-19 18:20:28 UTC
	When using the ntpd_config variable, as referenced in /etc/rc.d/ntpd,
	the remaining command line flags passed to ntpd are incorrect.

	For example, without ntpd_config set:

root    41801  0.0  0.1  2916  1744  ??  Ss   10:13AM   0:00.01 /usr/sbin/ntpd -g -c /etc/ntp.conf -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -f /var/db/ntpd.drift

	With ntpd_config set to /conf/ME/ntpd.conf:

root    41733  0.0  0.1  2916  1736  ??  Ss   10:11AM   0:00.01 /usr/sbin/ntpd -g -c /conf/ME/ntp.conf

	The end result is that when using ntpd_config and attempting to
	stop the daemon via /etc/rc.d/ntpd stop, the user is told there's
	no pidfile (which is true).  The driftfile is also not getting
	created/used in that case.


Not sure how to fix this.
How-To-Repeat: 	Set ntpd_config in /etc/rc.conf.

I cannot reproduce this problem. Does it still exist for you?

Hmm, interesting.  No, I can't reproduce this.  Maybe something in the 
rc.subr framework changed which somehow tickled a fix for this.  I'll go 
ahead and close this.  :)  Thanks for looking into it.
