Network Time Protocol (NTP)

Postby Evan » 14 Mar 2017, 09:32


@ MatthewScholefield - Is anyone able to set time to automatically update? Whenever I do so, I get "unable to authenticate/execute the action 4".


@ brokenman -
link /etc/localtime against the required timezone in /usr/share/zoneinfo

rm /etc/localtime && ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Sao_Paulo /etc/localtime

ntpdate pool.ntp.org



So it doesn't get lost in random chat.

Thank you Evan. :good:

Do note, those commands need to be run as root.

-update-

A related thread: Porteus clock. How it works.

And the two commands you posted do indeed finally resolve the multi-boot problem with Windows and the machine clock set as local time. :Yahoo!:
