:x The stupid dumb blankety blank clock won't stabilize. Every time I reboot it changes. A petty little problem, but I bet somebody knows how to fix it.
In rc.conf I have hardwareclock set to "localtime" and timezone set to EST. In kde if I open Adjust Date & Time it's set to utc? Should I change rc.conf to UTC?? I just tried to adjust the clock and it would'nt
adjust at all. Anybody know how to fix this? -- Thanks - Larry
I changed timezone to America/NewYork, instead of EST, they're both listed in usr/share/zoneinfo, and then left the fields in the Adjust Date & Time blank. It seems to be working, but what is the correct method?
I have come to love htpd from freshmeat. Instead of accessing a timeserver it uses any old website. My clock is 3 seconds out on boot and it adjusts for that immediately then it checks every 12 hours. That may not suit everybody and those people would probably choose adjtime which calculates a slew rate and then brings your clock into synch with whatever atomic timeserver you nominate. However htpd is simple and it works. I use my ISP port 80.
Do you have a Nvidia chipset on your motherboard? I do and until I saw a post here about disabling both of the 'spread spectrum' options in the Bios I had grief with the clock.
Check it out.
Fixed -- All I did was change timezone in rc.conf from EST to America/NewYork. That other pain in the ass system used to recommend EST, therefore I used EST -- Larry
