Description

LSAC(v2)
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with another referenced time source. This package includes the ntpd daemon which continuously adjusts system time and utilities used to query and configure the ntpd daemon. This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, with a complex Name Service Switch (NSS) configured and large NTP request rate, the ntpd daemon needed more memory than was allowed by the memory locking limit. As a consequence, the ntpd process could terminate unexpectedly. To fix this bug, the memory locking limit has been doubled. As a result, ntpd no longer crashes. (BZ#1037272) Users of ntp are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
