An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:

This update for chrony fixes the following issues:

  • Read runtime servers from /var/run/netconfig/chrony.servers (bsc#1099272, bsc#1161119)
  • Move chrony-helper to /usr/lib/chrony/helper, because there should be no executables in /usr/share.
  • Add chrony-pool-suse and chrony-pool-openSUSE subpackages that preconfigure chrony to use NTP servers from the respective pools for SUSE and openSUSE. (bsc#1156884, SLE-11424)
  • Add chrony-pool-empty to still allow installing chrony without preconfigured servers.
