I have to make Ubuntu to be synchronysing the system time when booting up with ntp.linux.edu.lv instead of the ntp.ubuntulinux.org

Thanks!

Just edit your ntp config. file(try /etc).

well, i found that ntp.conf file and added "server ntp.linux.org.lv"; but when booting, the system still says "Synchronizing system time with ntp.ubuntulinux.org" (or something in that manor - i don't remember the exact line).

maybe the time actually IS synchronized with ntp.linux.org.lv and the line saying that it's synchronizing with ntp.ubuntulinux.org is just plain text?

Where you have multiple entries in the ntp.conf file ntp will analyse the jitter and time delay parameters and then sync with the most accurate time source. If you wish to use a specific server as a time reference then this should be the only one on the list.

A real easy way to complete this function is to right click on your time and select adjust time and date. Then install NTP if need be. Then place a check in time servers. (If your have to install NTP then you need to close this box and re-open it.) Finally, select the servers you would like to adjust your time to.

unfortunately, i've tried all that already - but still, when booting, it shows "Synchronizing time to ntp.ubuntulinux.org", which, most probably, indicates that onboot it still syncs the time with that original site.

well, but thanks for those tips anyway.

i'll continue to poke around the deep net and eventually get the thing i need!

thans again!

Cool Done!

I got it.

In etc/default there's a file called ntpdate, which contains the server/server list with which to syncronize the time. i had to edit that line and that's all!
