Just enable the NTP client and you'll be fine.
Vahis, Please elaborate on the NTP client, I don't have one, that I
am aware of. I checked the firewall and don't have an NTP client.
And I'd like to know how to set it up. Yast2 has an entry for it
but I must be doing something wrong because no daemon runs, no program
runs, and no cron job is set up. And the clock is still losing time.
OK. Set your timezone correctly. Setup the NTP client and point it to a time
source (in most cases, your provider has one, otherwise use one of the NTP
pool servers in your neck of the woods). If done, check (as root) if the
daemon runs. The NTP service will fail to start if the time difference
between your local clock and the time source is too large. If that is the
case, run ntpdate as root, then try restarting the NTP daemon as root:
Mind you, the NTP service will regularly check your local clock for skew and
will make sure that it is properly adjusted if necessary.
Thank you very much. I've done much of that but possibly
in the wrong order. My "provider" seems not to have a time
source so I have to use the pool.
