Time clock and NTP problem on Mate desktop


Hi there,


I am running FreeBSD with Mate desktop, when I boot up I got the Mate login prompt showing me the UTC time, but when I log into the system it gives me local time what's going on here ? also I can't use the Mate control center to sync time the controls grayed out only shows me this (attached image), I already set ntp_enable to yes, also ntp start up sync to yes but still can't unlock and sync. please advise.

If set properly, your hardware clock is set to CUT, and that is what you see prior to logon. Once you log in your environment loads INCLUDING YOUR TIMESZONE. You could set timezone in the system to get the first prompt set to local time, but what is the point?

As for NTP, once NTP is properly installed and running NTPD should run on startup. If it is already running you are prevented from starting another copy. (If you tried at the command line it would immediately die because it could not get the port it needs to listen on. the FIRST running copy would already own that port.) I am not saying that is what is happening, but it is something you should check for. Look and see if ntpd is already up.
