Windows installer, different versions of Python on Windows
I would like to install several copies of Python 2.4.2 on my machine,
but it doesn't seem to be possible.
If I allready has a version installed, the installer only gives the
- change python 2.4.2
- repair python 2.4.2
- remove python 2.4.2
I would like to install different versions of Zope 3, and since it is
installed under a specific python version, the simplest solution would
be to install several Python versions, and install a different zope3
version under each python install.
Have I misunderstood something here?

I just put our new Windows Installer for NTP online. It includes a
recent version of NTP 4.2.0a (dated 03/31/2005) and recent versions of
the necessary OpenSSL DLLs.
Please download it here:
A german download page is available here:
If you want to add a link for this on your website, please make sure you
are linking to one of the above pages, not to the installer itself, as
its filename is based on the included NTP version and therefore will
surely change from time to time.
Please see the "NTP for Windows NT/2000/XP" section and make sure you
read the Installer Readme
before downloading and installing NTP on your machine.
Any suggestion, flame, blame, fame, critics, comments and all other kind
of feedback is greatly appreciated! Please contact me directly per mail:

We are proud to announce that now more than 5000 people downloaded our

Only a few of you reported problems which we were able to resolve by
providing patched versions of NTP (especially the NT users faced
difficulties) mostly. If you experience problems with the installer,
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, maybe we can help you.

Anyone experienced this problem before?
Its getting annoying
I've seen this problem happen whenever I've removed any of the files
that get installed with LabVIEW...I've also seen it happen when a DLL
that gets installed with LabVIEW is overwritten with a DLL of a
different version. My best suggestion would be for you to go to
Add/Remove Programs, select National Instruments Software, select
LabVIEW from the resulting list, and choose the "Repair" option...this
replaces all LabVIEW files with the originals from the LabVIEW
installer (so use this option with caution if you have purposely
modified anything that installs with LabVIEW, like VIs from
vi.lib). Other than this, I'm not sure what the problem could
be...you may have some other program/installer that is attempting to
remove or modify files that were originally installed by LabVIEW.
You might just be right. I fiddled with some example vis.
Lemme try tomorrow.

I guess I'm a bit flustered. Is there some list of
UNIX utilities that are or are not "compatible" with
NTP merely keeps your clock in sync, usually within
milliseconds of the 'master'.
Is Ingres not compatible with the correct time? ;-)
Or are you running Ingres 6.4 and you are manually
dealing with Day Light Savings Time? In that
case, you might be fudging with the system clock and/or
time zone. I wouldn't run NTP in that case, unless
you learn to configure it to your rules.
By the way, DLST is evil.
Where, pray tell, is this "official" non-compatibility posted?

Can't we just do something like hook up a cheap digital watch to motherboard so it has it's own internal 'time-server' that it can sync against periodically.

We don't support changing the system clock whilst ingres is running, especially if it goes backwards. It will affect timestamps on journal records as well as any user data created with date('now') etc.
From the man page of ntpdate, if the time is out of sync by < 0.5 sec then it will adjust it by calling adjtime, which doesn't actually change the clock it merely speeds it up or slows it down slightly until the time is back in sync. This method should be ok because it means that the time is always increasing as it should.
If the difference is > 0.5 sec then it will set the time by calling settimeofday. This should be avoided while ingres is running, and if the time is set backwards then ingres should really be kept down long enough for the new clock time to overtake the old.
The point about 6.4 and DST is a good one.
