ntp package won't install
Last modified: 2008-07-01 07:00:33 EDT
Description of problem: can't install ntp package
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ntp-4.2.2p1-4.el5.i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install ntp
Total download size: 1.3 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
(1/1): ntp-4.2.2p1-4.el5. 100% |=========================| 1.3 MB 00:01
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
error: %pre(ntp-4.2.2p1-4.el5.i386) scriptlet failed, signal 2
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping ntp-4.2.2p1-4.el5
Installed: ntp.i386 0:4.2.2p1-4.el5
Expected results: I would like ntp to install.
Additional info: Yum hangs on "Running Transaction". After about 5 mins I hit
Ctrl-C, and the error lines popped up and yum finished.
I ran it again later, and just waited instead of hitting Ctrl-C. The install
went through, but in ~15 mins. I'm not sure why the delay is there, perhaps it
is something specific with my machine (hardware problem, incorrect LDAP config)?
Try running strace on it:
strace -f -o ntpinstall.strace yum install ntp
And see what is the last thing in the log when it is waiting.
Closing as NOTABUG as it's unlikely a bug in ntp package itself. Please reopen
if it shows up again.
