I'd always presumed these messages occured on my machine because the ntpd (network time protocol daemon) had adjusted the system clock. I can't actually tell you for sure since the messages aren't logged by syslog here so there's no easy way of comparing the times to see if they correspond to the ntpd adjustments. Check to see if you have ntpd running - if so that's probably the reason for the messages. -- Jez Hancock - System Administrator / PHP Developer http://munk.nu/ http://jez.hancock-family.com/ - Another FreeBSD Diary http://ipfwstats.sf.net/ - ipfw peruser traffic logging _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
