Bug#369899: kcontrol: should suggest ntpdate

Package: kcontrol
Version: 4:3.5.3-1
Severity: wishlist

I was eagerly awaiting KDE 3.4 in Etch until I tried it and couldn't
find a way to synchronize the clock by NTP. Today someone learned me
that kcmshell clock could actually do that. The trick is that,
apparently, some *ntp* packages have to be installed. I tried ntpdate
first, and that worked. I don't know NTP enough to say if other packages
can provide the same functionality.

Suggesting ntpdate won't be much helpful for other people, who would
better see the option in kcmshell clock anyway, and being told to
install ntpdate when they attempt to use it, but I guess this report
will remind me to open a bug upstream about that later.
