  1. ntp-4.2.4p5 problems : keyword "crypto" unknown, line ignored

    Hi all,

    I installed the new ntp-4.2.4p5 in Redhat 7.2 and I noticed that it
    doesn’t recognize the keyword ‘crypto’ in the ntp.conf file. This used
    to work in version 4.2.0.

    Ntp.conf:
    crypto pw password
    crypto randfile /dev/urandom

    NTP log:
    configure: keyword "crypto" unknown, line ignored
    configure: keyword "crypto" unknown, line ignored

    Is it a bug or I am missing something?


    Regards

    Joe

    This and your previous post indicate to me that you built ntp without
    support from OpenSSL.

    .... which means the OpenSSL header files must be installed on your system,
    so NTP's ./configure script will be able to detect them and the NTP
    binaries can be built with OpenSSL support.

    The OP is using RedHat.

    While I'm not familiar with that particular OS I can tell you that on
    Debian it takes one command to set up the correct build environment for
    NTP:

    # apt-get build-deps ntp

    Great, that's very straightforward.

    I hope Redhat's build-deps do include the OpenSSL headers ;-)

    Thanks Harlan, Martin and others for your replies. Yes the reason ntp-
    keygen didn't work in my 4.2.4p5 build was that I didn't build it with
    crypto and openssl options. I rebuilt it with those options and ntp-
    keygen worked as I expected.
