Clock running way fast?

I know this has been discussed many times but I just can't find the thread

For some reason, hwclock is showing the correct time, but the KDE clock rushes away. For exactly one minute, the clock increases for two minutes. It may be because of the 64bit processor?

How to solve the problem? (without using NTP )

These days it's better to use a ntp pool server, unless you have permission from the ntp server administrator, eg:
EDIT: The most recent thread on ntp with a couple of handy scripts is NTP - how to slack it best?
