comment How to check if NTPD updates machine's time successfully using shell?
@JaimeHablutzel, it's debatable. I may say that this is another approach op may take. People often ask how to do something that they think is a solution to their problem instead of asking exactly what the want to achieve. The question makes me think that op is mostly interesting in getting the time synced, not so much what tool is used.

comment Why is the Linux kernel called an “image”?
TBH not sure you're right about the origin of it, but your explanation makes so much sense that I have to upvote. IMHO compressed image is still an image. The way to retrieve image is irrelevant. It's an image. It makes clear what you're talking about and perhaps that's the most important thing.

FYI there is not an option to use ubound so also DNSSEC is working, see fedoraproject.org/wiki/Networking/NameResolution/DNSSEC

comment How to check if NTPD updates machine's time successfully using shell?
@dfc, it came pre-installed on my fedora machine and I've never had any issue with it (used it for years now). I've never had issues with ntpd in the past as well but if you read on the link I have provided, there is some information as to why chrony is better for non-always on machines. That's why I suggested to the op to try it out, it may or may not work better for him. So it's just another good option to try before going into too much tuning, optimizing and hacking ntpd.

comment Kill TIME_WAIT sockets immediately?
There is also a small utility called cutter to terminate TCP connections. It does not require building a kernel module. Included in some linux distributions. I've also seen a perl script to do the same but can't find it now.

comment Remove duplicate $PATH entries with awk command
@dogbane, right, initially I didn't notice the extra line and when I wrote the third command I forgot to update the other two. wrt <<< it adds a new line at end like echo without -n. It is a bash extension though so not portable and does not provide any advantages over piping for this task. Johnny Williem, use the third command that starts with PATH=
