I have the same problem, the time on my system is very unstable, i'm using a sid client on a sarge host under vmware gsx, i have installed ntp, and after that i get the errror message, the time is running very slow, after 10 minutes real time, my system only counts 5 minutes.

set_rtc_mmss:...same here
set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 0 to 59

So were you guys able to fix it? I have the same problem on a vmware VM....

VMWare doesn't give your guest OS a steady clock, so it can't work well with NTP. When NTP sees that your system is more than 10 sec out-of-sync, it figures something major and evil has happened and it terminates quietly.

VMWare has an official whitepaper here:

Just disable Clock sync with the host and use NTP

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:58 AM.
