Description Jonathan Kamens 2012-05-15 10:42:39 EDT
This link is included in the ntp RPM:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Apr 29 22:10 /lib/systemd/system/systemd-timedated-ntp.target.wants/ntpd.service -> ../ntpd.service

It shouldn't be. Rather, there should be the line in /lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service in the [Install] section:


This makes it impossible to fully disable ntpd.
