Description of problem:
I installed FC4T1 with no relevant configuration changes apart from setting
the NTP server to use my own local NTP server instead of pool.ntp.org. Most
of the time it SEGTV's shortly after startup but occasionally it works
Here is a GDB trace of the ntpd startup:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00edd0cb in __printf_fp () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
#0 0x00edd0cb in __printf_fp () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
#1 0x00eda21c in vfprintf () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
#2 0x00f76965 in __vsnprintf_chk () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
#3 0x0090aeb9 in receive () from /usr/sbin/ntpd
#4 0x008d5173 in main () from /usr/sbin/ntpd
The NTP server that it is talking to is running Debian.
This may be related to #145258
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Repeatedly run /etc/init.d/ntpd stop ; /etc/init.d/ntpd start on a FC4T1
machine and it should happen.
Actual Results: Most of the time it doesn't start correctly, ntpd SEGV's shortly after
