I am creating a ntpd backup live cd to use here at work using Fedora 9.
I have one issue that I can't seem to get resolved. In the post section of my kickstart I echo my ntpd config into /etc/ntp.conf, run hwclock and then start ntpd
I notice in the logs, the boot messages and via ntpq after boot that when ntpd is started it is not getting to time servers that are set as it's peers in the config file, the reason appears to be lack of network access. I see in the boot messages that the network is getting setup after this command is executed.
I read here
that you can access the network and resolve IP addresses if you have configured the network with static IP including a nameserver. I have the network device setup this way but seem to still be having issues, which I think are due to my post items executing before the NIC is configured by Fedora.
So is there a way to changes when these post items are executed or is there a way to automatically fire off a shell script after the box is up, say to the log in screen, as I know by then the network will be up.
