Clock running slow-suse 9.3 dell c600

Postby spires_rule » Sat Jun 11, 2005 10:27 pm

Wonder if anyone can help steer me in right direction with a small problem. Have suse 9.3 installed on dell laptop with win2000 also (seperate boot manager), clock in linux (on KDE desktop) runs about one and a half hours slow per day. Clock OK in win2000. I am quite new to linux, anyone have an idea where I start to look for problem please? Thanks

try in the clock configuration panel (sorry dont know in suse, probably right-click on the clock) and use the internet time synchronisation thingy, if you are on braod band that is otherwise i have no idea, sounds very strange though, might not have recognised your cpu correctly or something.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately cant find any sync option, only clock types, time zones etc, and a choice of local or UTC settings. Will have a look at possibility of processor and other stuff being correctly recognised though. Thanks.

Try Control Centre => YaST2 Modules => Network Services => NTP Client and after providing the Administrator Password configure the settings to a public NTP server. Alternatively your ISP may also provide a NTP server for customers, mine does :wink: as well as FTP mirrors, games servers, Tucows mirrors, streaming radio, etc

Thanks, that was excellent advice. although I'm not permanently connected to net, its usually first thing I do when booted up and now clock will be updated as soon as logged on. Tried it and it works a treat. Thanks very much.

Cheers
Dave

p.s. Have been to Bathurst a few years ago and drove round race track. Excellent fun.

You don't have to be ... just stay under 60 km/h!

This just makes you aware of how hard it is to drive at the 250+ km/h when racing ... but you still get the idiots trying to see how fast they can go down Conrod Straight. We have hill climbs (backwards up through The Esses) and other open events a number of times a year run by the Bathurst Light Car Club. Just bring your car and helmet (with the right harness, seat, safety mods etc) and pay the entry fees.
