Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 255981
ntp not available in package selection
Last modified: 2008-05-21 11:40:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I didn't found "ntp" in the package selection using the text based installer.
Needs to be listed in the comps file somewhere in order to show up in the UI.
I guess it would be worthwhile to add it to system-tools as mandatory for the
future. I think it is a service that we should guarantee to be available.
Fix checked into CVS. Should appear in the next nightly tree.
ntp is listed in comps under system tools:
nonetheless the package does not show in anaconda package selection
dialog (GUI nor text version).
I'm not sure what's wrong...
According to Bill Nottingham, it's expected that mandatory packages will not
show up in the UI. He also pointed out that ntp is listed as 'default' in
Fedora, which makes sense. I've checked in this change.
Verified with RHEL5.2-Client-20080404.nightly
