# rpm -q ntp
ntp-4.2.4p2-3.fc8


There is something really weird going on here:

[root nexus etc]# rpm -ql ntp
package ntp is not installed
[root nexus etc]# rpm -ql ntp-4.2.4p2-3.fc8
/etc/ntp
/etc/ntp.conf
/etc/ntp/crypto
/etc/ntp/crypto/pw
/etc/ntp/keys
...

Why doesn't rpm recognize the package with the name "ntp"? I even removed the package with "rpm -e --nodeps ntp-4.2.4p2-3.fc8" (again just saying "ntp" isn't enough) and reinstalled it but that doesn't help.

I also tried to check the db:
[root nexus ~]# package-cleanup --problems
Setting up yum
No Repositories Available to Set Up
Reading local RPM database
Processing all local requires
No problems found

That doesn't look quite right...
