Description of problem:
/sbin/dhclient-script sets the driftfile in /etc/ntp.conf to an
incorrect location (/etc/ntp/data/drift) generating much noise in
/var/log/messages. It should IMHO be set to /var/lib/ntp/drift
Pretty identical to bug:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get a ip via a dhcp lease that has NTP info
This is a known issue ( bug #131733 ), that is fixed in
dhcp-3.0.1rc12+ and in current version of dhcp : dhcp-3.0.1-7.
dhcp-3.0.1-7+ will not be available for RHEL-3 until Update 4.
Meanwhile, you can get the RPMS for
dhcp-3.0.1-6 compiled for RHEL-3 at:
or you can download the latest source RPM:
and build it with:
$ rpmbuild --rebuild dhcp-3.0.1-7.src.rpm
and install the resulting rpms in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS .
