Fedora Update Notification
2007-08-29 10:30:07.544038

Name        : ntp
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 4.2.4p2
Release     : 3.fc7
Summary     : Synchronizes system time using the Network Time Protocol (NTP)
Description :
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's
time with another reference time source. The ntp package contains
utilities and daemons that will synchronize your computer's time to
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) via the NTP protocol and NTP servers.
The ntp package includes ntpdate (a program for retrieving the date
and time from remote machines via a network) and ntpd (a daemon which
continuously adjusts system time).

Install the ntp package if you need tools for keeping your system's
time synchronized via the NTP protocol.
