Time skew of 580 min when I set my time zone in Gentoo
 
Hi everyone,

This is my first post in this forum so I'd like to say hello.

I have a problem that when I set my local time zone in a gentoo based distro, I have a time skew of 580 minutes?

How can I correct this.

Cheers,
Scooter2

Hi scooter2,

If you have correct time zone selected you should be able to fix it by installing and running ntpd (network time protocol), which on Gentoo should be (I believe):
Code:

emerge ntp
rc-update add ntpd default
/etc/init.d/ntpd start

There is configuration file (/etc/ntp.conf), which should contain time servers specified.


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 09:57 AM.
