Now i also run darkstat on this alix device, just for fun to see the traffic. Well, i said every time i boot it up the time is set to 01012000. The darkstat init script usually always runs before the ntp-client and thus getting the date from 2000. It's a funny because if i look at the darkstat site it shows something like "running for 4234 days, since 2000-01-01". Though that would be awesome but unfortunately its wrong.
A solution now would be to edit the darkstat init script and add to depend() "need ntp-client". It's a oneliner but it's not the correct way and with every update or reinstall of darkstat etc-update would overwrite it (though updates of darkstat are really seldom). Anyway there is a better (and correct) solution. Via /etc/rc.conf you can add/remove dependencies for any init scripts in gentoo.
The correct onliner in /etc/rc.conf is
That's all and it works perfectly.
