ntpd filling syslog

#1 Post by Guido » Sun Nov 18, 2018 8:53 am

I'm getting a repeating error message [ntpd] error configuring pool 0.debian.pool.ntp.org, along with other similar messages. Every 5 seconds.

When I installed MX 17.1 I thought I turned that service off. I manually killed ntpd and the messages stopped. Not sure what's going on, but this would appear to be a configuration issue.

I'm not interested in ntpd running at all.
During the custom MX installation, I thought it saw the option to turn off ntpd, and I thought I selected that option. Unless my memory is playing tricks on me, that would make it an MX configuration issue. I think I've managed to prevent restart during boot. So, problem temporarily solved.

Is there an utility to control services recommended by MX? Don't want to break my new system.
