View Full Version : losing track of time

23rd June 2005, 11:36 AM
i'm running fc4 on a mini mac and have discovered that the mini is slowly losing track of time

last night i manually adjusted the time using date and then 'tried' to sync the time with the hardware clock. i say tried because i am unable to see the time which hwclock --show should print.

i am running ntpd (ntp-4.2.0.a.20040617-8) and i have set UTC to false in /etc/sysconfig/clock

anyone have any ideas or suggestions.

Cheers ws

fixed it, i appended burst and iburst to the server declarations in ntp.conf

server 0.pool.ntp.org burst iburst
server 1.pool.ntp.org burst iburst
server 2.pool.ntp.org burst iburst

Did you see a SELinux "avc denied" about hwclock?
