Description Miroslav Lichvar 2010-05-13 13:50:44 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #481151 +++

Description of problem:
rpm verify test of the package ntp fails on its configuration file /etc/ntp.conf

but this file may be automagically changed by dhclient-script which is the default configuration, and so it could not be expected that it will match the package's version

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always (on systems where dhclient can set ntp configuration)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -V ntp
Actual results:
S.5....T  c /etc/ntp.conf

Expected results:
(no error output)

Additional info:
I propose changing the corresponding .spec line to:
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime) %{_sysconfdir}/ntp.conf

the issue is present also on RHEL-4
