Description shrek-m 2003-10-22 07:50:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031009

Description of problem:
since you provide only  clock[12].redhat.com  you should at least give the
possibility to *add* own/others ntpservers via redhat-config-date and while

sure, i can add this entries in /etc/ntp/ntpservers,
but not while installation

think about an WS without internet-access but with an ntpserver in the lan, here
is no possibility to add this one while installation, this must be done
afterwards manually.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora core
2. try to add your own/others ntpserver while installation in ?firstboot? or
later with redhat-config-date

Actual Results:  you have only the choice between clock[12].redhat.com or to
disable ntp
especially if you have no internet-access but an ntpserver in your lan.

Expected Results:  it should be possible to add own/others ntpservers

Huh?  You can click in the GtkCombo widget and type whatever NTP
server you would like into the box.
