New linuxptp packages are now available as a Technology Preview for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Linux PTP project is a software implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE standard 1588 for Linux. These packages provide a robust implementation of the standard and use the most relevant and modern Application Programming Interfaces (API) offered by the Linux kernel. Supporting legacy APIs and other platforms is not a goal.
This enhancement update adds the linuxptp packages to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as a Technology preview. (BZ#848856)
