Comment 1 jieryn 2008-01-01 21:49:11 UTC
This may be interesting..

Fix is provided, I haven't had a chance to test it yet.
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-01-01 23:07:14 UTC
it is merely a runtime warning and should not affect the correct running of the ntp application

i dont know squat about avahi, and there's a bug open upstream, so it'll get resolved eventually

applying a [possibly] incorrect change to resolve a cosmetic warning doesnt sound like a good idea to me ;)
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-02 10:28:26 UTC
If you are bothered with this, just change the initscript to read  AVAHI_COMPAT_NOWARN="1" start-stop-daemon --start --exec /usr/sbin/ntpd \ ... and the warning will be gone. ;)
Comment 4 Alexandre Nuno Milheiro 2010-07-22 14:33:31 UTC
You can also add the following line en /etc/conf.d/ntpd:

IMHO it's cleaner than editing the initscript
