comment Splitting an MP4 file
@daithib8 is correct, output options come after input file. From man page ffmpeg [global_options] {[input_file_options] -i input_file} ... {[output_file_options] output_file}

comment ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
@highbandwidth are you able to resolve the NTP server names to IP addresses? And if so do you know they are serving time and reachable?

comment Can I uninstall Caribou without messing up Gnome?
gnome-core depends on caribou. I am not sure how useful the uninstall caribou solution is for people expecting to use gnome.

comment Is there a way to make ntpd -gq run faster
I forgot about the stupid dhcp client trying overriding the settings you put in ntpp.conf. Add diff -u /etc/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf.dhcp

Wow! That is strange I have never seen iburst not speed things up. That is the whole purpose of iburst. Can you retart and add the output of grep ntpd /var/log/syslog to the question?

Three questions: 1. Did you install fake-hwclock like I recommended in the other askubuntu question? 2. When you say bootstrap process are you rebooting this machine many times per day? 3. If not why do you think you need the time reset many times per day?

comment NTP: Use unprivileged ports
@Adam is there something wrong with my answer? Initially you accepted the answer and then you withdrew the acceptance without explanation. It seems I have provided documentation that demonstrates that openntpd uses unprivileged ports by default. What more do you need?
