Description Christophe PEREZ 2006-05-27 23:54:35 UTC
emerge depclean remove libcap
revdep-rebuild recompile net-misc/ntp-
etc-update suggest to modify /etc/conf.d/ntpd by :
NTPD_OPTS="-u ntp:ntp"
I keep the older, but, ntp doesn't start anymore.
I have to remove "-u ntp:ntp" to make it working.
I tried to emerge libcap, and compile again ntp, but same thing.

what can do that ?

# emerge -pv ntp

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Your kernel configuration. See /var/log/messages. This is not a support forum, please ask questions on or IRC (#gentoo).
Comment 2 Christophe PEREZ 2006-05-28 00:07:55 UTC
Sorry, but when a configuration works, and I just revdep-rebuild, and it doesn't work anymore, on 5 PCs, and there is no message in /var/log/message, I can think there is something not very normal.
I'll go to forums.
Comment 3 Christophe PEREZ 2006-05-28 09:04:56 UTC
In fact, this is due to USE "caps" which is not default, and not kernel configuration.

I can't understand how an ebuild can have its USE change without changing version.

Erm, you'll get no issues unless you enable capabilities in kernel. If you do, set your use flags accordingly.

You don't want to try to understand what I mean.
Never mind. I give up.
