Description illtud 2004-08-06 13:07:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.4)

Description of problem:
The preferred way to set up ntp (as a client) on RHEL is to use
'redhat-config-date' (see documentation and /etc/ntp* files). The
text-based version of the tool does nothing more that set the TZ, it
doesn't include the NTP setup which the graphical version does.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-date in text mode
2. Get to choose your TZ. 
3. Click 'next'

Actual Results:  Utility ends and hands you back to the shell.

Expected Results:  Some kind of NTP control.

Additional info:

Those of us who prefer to run our servers without X (surely a large
proportion of Enterprise users) expect the text versions of the config
tools to mirror the GUI ones.

Yes, it's the same bug as 128508, but I'm on RHEL, not Fedora Core,
which is why my search for bugs in redhat-config-date in RHEL came up
with zaroo. Can RHEL be added to the systems affected to 128508? If
not, can you keep this bug open, since the bug still exists in RHEL,
and as an Enterprise customer when I'm looking for bugs in RHEL, I
certainly don't search FC bugs (since FC is so far ahead of RHEL).

Comment 3 illtud 2004-08-06 15:10:50 UTC
Another reason to keep this one open is that FC now calls the utility
'system-config-date', so even searching across all RH Products for
'redhat-config-date' (the broken RHEL component) won't lead you to bug
#128508. (I did my best to find this bug in Bugzilla first, honest).

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2004-08-06 16:04:07 UTC
I didn't expect you to spot this on your own in the first place ;-).

The reasons why I dupe-closed this one are:
- this is really the same bug, despite the tools being named differently
- now I have a reference on the system-config-date bug to this bug,
meaning if I come around to implementing the requested functionality
in the development version I shouldn't forget about the same issue in RHEL
- I can always reopen this bug once this is implemented in
system-config-date to backport the implementation

Mind that you will be kept up to date on the other bugs progress as
Bugzilla has put you into the Cc: list for it.
