[TriLUG] Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - Anyone Upgraded Yet

I installed 14.04 on some Oracle/Sun Netra servers this week,
and I had some weird problems with the system clock advancing
way too fast.  Set it via ntpdate and a few minutes later, it
starts scooting ahead at something like 2X normal rate.  NTP
could not keep it in sync.

I installed 12.04 on the same box and it worked fine.

My guess is that these servers are approaching the speed of
light, and so time slows down and the wall clock appears to
move at twice the normal rate.
