I'm running FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE within Vmware v6.0.4 build 93057 with the host OS being XP-Home-SP2. I also have two jails running within the FreeBSD VM. I have within /boot/loader.conf: kern.hz="50" And within root's crontab: PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin @reboot ntpdate us.pool.ntp.org I do not have the Vmware tools loaded. Nor do I have ntpd running. Time has not been a big issue. The host OS (XP) is used more than average for the irreplaceable Windoe$ software I have yet to find replacements for native to FreeBSD. I just decided to do an ntpdate and here are the results: plz# ntpdate -b us.pool.ntp.org 7 Jun 17:04:06 ntpdate: step time server 22.214.171.124 offset 2.433443 sec plz# uptime 4:59PM up 6 days, 18:47, 1 user, load averages: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 -- "If at first you don't succeed, so much for skydiving!" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
