                       Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

    Synopsis: Updated dateconfig is available
    Advisory ID: RHBA-2002:087-05
    Issue date: 2002-05-10
    Updated on: 2002-06-03
    Product: Red Hat Linux
    Keywords: dateconfig ntp ntp.conf
    Cross references:


    1. Topic:

    Dateconfig is used to set the system's date and time zone configurations.
    An updated dateconfig package is available, which allows dateconfig to
    handle a malformed ntp.conf file without crashing.

    2. Relevant releases/architectures:

    Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386

    3. Problem description:

    dateconfig-0.7.5-5 allowed the user to enable NTP without specifying an
    NTP server, resulting in a malformed ntp.conf file. If the user tried to
    run dateconfig again to repair the error, dateconfig crashed while trying
    to parse the malformed ntp.conf file.

    This update to dateconfig prevents the user from enabling NTP without
    specifying an NTP server. In addition, dateconfig now handles the
    malformed ntp.conf file without crashing.

    4. Solution:

    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.

    To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

    rpm -Fvh [filenames]

    where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
    RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
    not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
    can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
    desired RPMs.

    Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
    people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
    launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


    This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
    RPMs being upgraded on your system.

    5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

    64329 - redhat-config-time has consistant traceback

    6. RPMs required:

    Red Hat Linux 7.3:



    7. Verification:

    MD5 sum Package Name
    19f217c2a5c4870285b4762a775aa844 7.3/en/os/SRPMS/dateconfig-0.7.5-7.src.rpm
    61851c7321ce27d7c11b9bd7f9473f55 7.3/en/os/i386/dateconfig-0.7.5-7.i386.rpm

    These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat, Inc. for security. Our key
    is available at:

    You can verify each package with the following command:
        rpm --checksig <filename>

    If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
    tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
        rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
