I've recently installed slackware distro 14.1. I'm having trouble with ntpd. The time on my computer is always off. The first time it was off 12 hours. I reset the time using `ntpdate -s time.nist.gov`. After rebooting, it is was off again, this time 4 hours. I've enabled ntpd on 3 other Debian systems and had no problem. According to /var/log/messages, ntpd is running. My TZ is set correctly to EDT.
