I am no priest, thus i can't spread misinformation, only what i remember
of that item.

the LSB 1.2 mentions xntp, i could not find the LSB files that enumerate
required packages.

at the time of release of SuSE 7.? ( can't remember ) this was explicitly
stated by the release team in the accompanying README.
I would have to do real archeology to unearth my media of that time.
