Description Alex Chekholko 2007-01-09 12:42:10 EST
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

Actual results:
Total download size: 1.3 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
(1/1): ntp-4.2.2p1-4.el5. 100% |=========================| 1.3 MB    00:01     
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
Running Transaction
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.
Comment 1 Alex Chekholko 2007-01-09 17:34:08 EST
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)?
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-10 04:58:44 EST
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.
