Description Branko Grubić 2014-08-31 11:12:23 UTC
Description of problem:
I saw this in f20 final anaconda installer, after install 'chronyd' service is active/running, but I selected/switched to OFF network option in timezone settings. Now tested f21 alpha-tc5 workstation live image, same problem.

I see in /root/anaconda-ks.cfg

# System timezone
timezone <xxx>/<xxx> --isUtc --nontp

I don't know how it works, but looks like '--nontp' is selected, but doesn't work later after install 

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

Comment 1 Branko Grubić 2014-09-01 18:00:36 UTC
Just want to confirm this on f20, I tested f20 final KDE live, after install, same problem 'chronyd' running and I switched network time option to OFF in anaconda
"# System timezone" options same to those of f21 install, so '--nontp' is there.

Comment 2 David Shea 2014-09-04 14:49:30 UTC
Can you attach the logs from the installation to this bug? --nontp is working fine for me in the f21 alpha-tc5 installer.

Comment 3 Branko Grubić 2014-09-07 07:22:42 UTC
Sorry, I cannot test this anymore.
Please close this bug.

Comment 4 Branko Grubić 2014-09-23 15:47:49 UTC
After install f21 workstation live image (alpha_rc1), I switched network time in installer to OFF, chronyd is running.
I'll attach anaconda-ks file, and log files.

Comment 12 Branko Grubić 2014-09-23 15:56:06 UTC
I'm not sure how this work, but maybe this is not anaconda bug?

Comment 13 David Shea 2014-09-23 16:00:11 UTC
Flipping the switch doesn't turn ntp off in the installer environment, it only controls whether ntp is enabled or disabled in the installed system. I suppose you could argue that we should turn it off in the installer as well.

Comment 14 Branko Grubić 2014-09-23 16:03:52 UTC
This is all after install, when booted to installed system.

Comment 15 David Shea 2014-09-23 18:17:59 UTC
Gotcha. The live image is being created with chronyd enabled. Normally it is installed disabled and anaconda enables the service if --nontp is not specified, so this is a bug in the creation of the live payload.

Comment 16 Kevin Fenzi 2014-09-27 16:58:52 UTC
Well, we aren't doing anything special in the live kickstarts... chrony is enabled by default as part of the preset. Additionally, don't we want chrony running in the live system? 

Can't anaconda disable it if it does see --nontp?

Comment 17 David Shea 2014-10-06 12:52:35 UTC
Yeah, ok.
