howto start ntpdate after restart ?


hi

on my debian sarge stable I have in cron.hourly the following entry:
Code:
debian:~# cat /etc/cron.hourly/ntpdate
#!/bin/sh

/usr/sbin/ntpdate -v 130.133.1.10 131.188.3.220 193.67.79.202 ; /sbin/hwclock --systohc > /dev/null 2>&1
because I'll synchronize the system time every hour,

but the machine has a wirelless card with wpa encryption and the cron will start before the internet connection, so the system is hanging each time during the restart.

could someone help me pls to solve this problem ?

ntpdate does that by itself. You don't need a cron job. At least mine does.

14 Aug 01:30:04 ntpdate[4389]: no servers can be used, exiting
could you post pls your /etc/ntp.conf ?

my /etc/ntp.conf is empty.

I've installed ntp, but my /etc/ntp.conf is still empty.

and howto be sure, that ntpdate runs automatically ?

Here's an easier solution "apt-get install ntp-simple"

It'll set up the daemon and write your /etc/ntp.conf file
