13.1 > Network > openntpd (3.9p1)

OpenNTPD is a FREE, easy to use implementation of the Network Time 
Protocol. It provides the ability to sync the local clock to remote
NTP servers and can act as NTP server itself, redistributing the
local clock. OpenNTPD is primarily developed by Henning Brauer as
part of the OpenBSD Project. The portable version is made by Darren

You will need to add the "_ntp" user and group to /etc/passwd and
/etc/group if it's not present on your system. Without these groups,
the package will not work. See
for uid and gid recommendations.

This package conflicts with the "ntp" package included with Slackware,
so only one of them should be installed at any given time.
The /etc/rc.d/rc.ntpd script in Slackware will not work with OpenNTPD;
be sure to move the /etc/rc.d/ over if you want it to work.
