Plotting NTP Stats

Part of the software I use to plot the ntp stats for my Soekris NET 4801. This software uses environment variables passed to Gnuplot to control aspects of the plot apperance on the fly (e.g. adjusting for Daylight Saving Time changes) and plots the data in local time rather than UTC. The *stats files are retrieved from the time server over http and the finished plots are uploaded to my public web-server using UUCP.

ALERT! These files are licensed under the GNU General Public License

IDEA! Some of the plot files have not yet been released to the public...

Debian ntp-dev package update "one-liner"

This one-liner is useful for situations where the binary ntp-dev Debian packege is not usable (e.g. non-i386 architectures)

cd /usr/local/src/ntp && \
apt-get update && rm -rf ntp-dev* && dpkg-repack ntp-dev && \
apt-get --build source ntp-dev && \
dpkg -i `ls ntp-dev_*_amd64.deb | tail -n1`
