View Full Version : beat the clock

pcbsd 7.1.1 kde
every time I turn on this system, the clock is 4 hrs. ahead of the correct time...... even though I reset it religiously at the start of each session.
is there any way to make it retain the setting?

You might be interested in NTP (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-ntp.html).
However if the clock is consistently four hours different, odds are there is a misconfiguration about whether your system clock is set to GMT or not, causing an improper time calculation to be used. Try running tzsetup (http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=tzsetup&sektion=8&apropos=0&manpath=FreeBSD+7.2-RELEASE) from a root konsole.
