SuSE 9.0 xntp bug - SOLVED
Here is what I found and did to get xntp working on SuSE 9.0 pro

(1) rcxntpd stop
(2) as superuser: ln -s --force --no-dereference ../..
/var/lib/ntp/var/lib/ntp
(the original problem is the link target was ../. [note the one dot])
(3) touch /var/lib/ntp/drift/drift.ntp
(4) chown ntp.nogroup /var/lib/ntp/drift/drift.ntp
(5) echo 0.0 > /var/lib/ntp/drift/drift.ntp
(6) ntpdate tick.greyware.com
(7) rcxntpd start

Hope this helps some other poor soul........
