on this subject, apart from the fact I don't have
/usr/share/timezone/Australia/Sydney
or even /usr/share/timezone

more pertinent is that my ntpd is not really keeping my clock updated

what do I need to do to see what I'm missing:



# service ntpd start
Starting ntpd:                                             [  OK  ]
# grep ntpd /var/log/messages

Dec 31 08:53:38 koala ntpd: ntpd startup succeeded
