FAQ
Jonathan,


I would much prefer to run out-of-the box. No question!


BTW, on other machines that I installed CentOS7,
chrony, was not there. Neither was anaconda or initial-setup.
This was after the install, naturally.


Ok, so maybe this box was unlucky. It was installed the same day
as Centos7 came out. I will re-install, update and see what happens.


Quite often the problem lies between the computer and the chair.


Update to follow...

Alexander,

First off, CentOS7 came with cronyd. Which was very annoying
because when I tried to remove it, it had 2 prereqs:
anaconda
initial-setup

Now, I don't know why the setup program kept these
2 around. I think CentOS7 needs a bit growing up.
'initial-setup' is the program that runs on your first boot, and it
requires 'anaconda'. 'anaconda' requires the 'chrony' package.
Services in the default install require a time-sync daemon, and chrony
is the default, so this isn't really unexpected. Once a system is set
up, it doesn't remove the initial-setup package.
Then I installed ntp. However, when I started it
it seems that it was not compiled with: --enable-all-clocks
That doesn't seem to be the case. Looking at the NTP spec file, I
see:

%configure \
--sysconfdir=%{_sysconfdir}/ntp/crypto \
--with-openssl-libdir=%{_libdir} \
--without-ntpsnmpd \
--enable-all-clocks --enable-parse-clocks \
--enable-ntp-signd=%{_localstatedir}/run/ntp_signd \
--disable-local-libopts

(check the git.centos.org version yourself:
https://git.centos.org/blob/rpms!ntp.git/dbacec4466ee70248db634b110bfad8a2b74cd82/SPECS!ntp.spec
)

As far as I can tell, there is literally no reason why you can't use
the packaged ntpd.

If you are having a problem with getting the packaged ntpd working, I
suggest filing a bug against the RHEL package. The package has many
patches, perhaps one of them is interfering with detecting your
device.
