Clock sync in dual boot Windows/Linux


This is probably as old as the hills, but I can't get past it. Every time I change windows clock, the linux clock changes too, so there's never any synchronization. If I set my windows clock to 3 p.m., the linux changes to 5 p.m. and so on. Any solutions to that? I've disabled ntp sync. I have Windows 7 (64) and Slackare 13.37 (32) on a hp 8530p.

Any suggestions much appreciated

You probably have Slack installed based on UTC - which might have seemed sensible at the time.
Windows has never been sensible. Change Slack to localtime. The ntp will (should) be fine.

Yes, it did work this way with $timeconfig. Thank you
