Are you sure you have a network connection?Stabber wrote:It does not work.
I used to use ntpdate, but just use ntpd now. The functionality of ntpdate (i.e. one shot mode) can be had with ntpd -q.pluggy wrote:Bizarre.....
It still just works out of the box for almost everyone but you it seems.
If it didn't have ntpd built in and pre-configured to fudge over the lack of an hardware clock, I'd favour ntpdate (sudo apt-get install ntpdate) and running it from a cron a few times a day. Which is what I've done in the past for other linux boxes rather than set up ntpd which is a bit involved from scratch. But since its already set up I don't bother, it just works.
