Description lra 2013-09-18 12:42:30 EDT
Description of problem:
After clean install NTP package is not installed. When the user tries to set network time in GUI Date&Time settings, the switch can be turned on but silently returns back to off some time later.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora 19 in default config
2.Go to Date & Time settings
3.Unlock the dialog
4.Click Network time switch to turn it on
5.Wait some time - it turns off without any warning/notice to user.

Actual results:
The Network time switch silently turns off some time after attempt to trun it on was done 

Expected results:
The Network time switch sould be disabled when there is no ntp package or package installation shuould be started.

Thanks for the bug report. Reassigning to control-center component.
Comment 2 Rui Matos 2013-09-21 12:35:54 EDT
Please attach the output of:

$ gdbus introspect --system --dest org.freedesktop.timedate1 --object-path /org/freedesktop/timedate1 --only-properties
Comment 3 Shichao An 2014-03-09 21:15:55 EDT
I encountered the same problem on Fedora 20, though in my case the switch is OK (will not turn back silently). The network time is not disabled even if the ntp package is not installed.

This is my output from the gdbus introspect (ntp removed):

node /org/freedesktop/timedate1 {
  interface org.freedesktop.timedate1 {
      readonly s Timezone = 'America/New_York';
      readonly b LocalRTC = true;
      readonly b CanNTP = true;
      readonly b NTP = true;

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:53:19 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 12:14:31 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
