/etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate: Fails to stop openntp

Bug #872210 reported by Reinhard Tartler on 2011-10-11
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ntp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

From /etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate:

invoke-rc.d --quiet ntp stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || true

/usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian -s $OPTS 2>/dev/null || :

invoke-rc.d --quiet ntp start >/dev/null 2>&1 || true

This code is supposed to stop the running ntpd. However, this fails if openntpd is installed.

I have a package ready for oneiric-updates, see the linked branch. Is this something that warrants an SRU?
