Dropline sync with time servers not working


Hi,

In Dropline 2.16.2 I'm trying to sync my computer's time with a time server. First I fire up ntpd. Then when I click on the Select Servers button, it gives me a list of servers. I check one, and...nothing happens. When I go back into select servers all the boxes remain unchecked. I have had the same problem now on three different computers. What am I doing wrong? BTW, it works fine in KDE.

Brian

That worked if I do it as root. I get "permission denied" if I do it as an ordinary user. More specifically:

Code:
ntpdate[4110]: bind() fails: Permission denied
I'm surprised that I am not prompted for a password when trying to make this change. In any case, can you tell me how to change the bind permissions?

Thanks,
Brian

This appears that it could be a bug. If you could, please post a bug report on http://sourceforge.net/projects/dropline-gnome/ , and we will see if we can fix it in an update.
