Description of problem:
When booting with kernel-2.6.8-1.521, ntpdate gives the following
# ntpdate ntp.mydomain.xyz
Looking for host ntp.mydomain.xyz and service ntp
host found : ntp.mydomain.xyz
ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
But running the previous kernel (2.6.7-1.494.2.2) on the same machine
ntpdate works fine again.
I read the workaround for wine on the announcement of the new kernel
, but it didn't work with ntpdate.
This occured on 3 different i686 servers on my test environment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2, kernel-2.6.8-1.521 and ntp-4.2.0-7
2.Boot with kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and run ntpdate
3.Do the same with kernel-2.6.8-1.521
Actual Results: ntpdate stopped working.
Expected Results: Date synchronization.
I uptate to same kernels and ntpdate email@example.com
(I think it's original FC2)
my time update script is:
/usr/sbin/ntpdate -bu -t 3 world.std.com
this script works OK.
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
