Fedora :: Network Time Protocol Part Of Date / Time Settings
Oct 3, 2009
I've got fedora 11 set up to use network time protocol to sync my laptop's date & time when I'm on-line. The question is simple really, I've added a local universality's time server (what is public) and it's live. but it's added to the end of the default time servers what come with fedora. How do I get fedora to just use the local time server, is it a case of removing the default time servers for fedora, but there is a box what says advanced options which are. sync system clock before starting service ???? & use Local time source (( is that the same as the local ntp server that I've got set up ))Hope some body can help me with the network time protocol part of Date/Time settings.
When I installed CentOS, I forgot to modify the settings of Network Time Protocol. I need to do the following: 1. Enable Network Time Protocol. 2. Add a new ntp server to the list. How I can do this after the installation. Is there an utility to handle this? or do I need to modify any files manually?
I'm using Debian Squeeze. Just noticed that my system time has slipped back an hour and I can't adjust it because even though I give the root password, the buttons remain inactive.I checked a few other apps that need root authorization and found that - System --> Administration --> Network behaves in the same way.
How do I know the time and date of a file downloaded from the net. Is it possible at all? If I want to know when the downloaded file such as a text file was created ie written by the author if not mentioed at all in the entire document. The command I use locally to know file creation time is given below.
Code: ls -l filename.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 691 Dec 3 11:12 filename.txt
For some reason, thunderbird uses some random order for the date elements, e.g. MM/DD/YY. I need to change it to YYYY/MM/DD but haven't found where! There is no option in TB to configure this so I guess it just picks some default from regional settings? Where do I need to go to set the date format to its logical form?
I upgraded from fedora 14 to fedora 15 yesterday. I live in India (IST) which is GMT +05:30. Every time I boot, my system clock increases its time by 5 and a half hours. For example, system clock on my machine is now Wednesday May 26,2011 22:44. If I were to reboot now, the time I would get is Thursday May 27, 2011 04:14. How do I correct this?
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
I'm successfully dual booting and running Windows XP and Fedora 11 (with EVERY recent update installed), everything works fine EXCEPT that I cannot get both System times to synchronize.. Evey time I run Fedora I find the system time is always an hour different to Windows. Evert time I correct the system time in Fedora it affects my BIOS time settings. If I then go into Windows I first have to go into the BIOS and correct the BIOS time setting by one hour before I get the correct time in Windows........ Nothing is wrong with my Windows side of things, I know this because if I don't log into Fedora then my system times stay correct, only when I correct the settings in Fedora (which are always an hour out) do I get my BIOS changed. Also in Fedora, although I live in the UK (London) Fedora ALWAYS DEFAULTS TO Guernsey, no matter how many times I correct this to LONDON, Fedora always defaults back to Guernsey.... Has anyone else experienced this as I'm sure it's a Bug in Fedora, surely it shouldn't alter my BIOS settings, should it ??
Whether it is vi or gvim, you can view the current non-default settings by writing ":set" and pressing <ENTER>. However, in FC15, vim clears the settings screen really quickly, not allowing me enough time to catch it. Normally it should pause at the settings screen, and clear it only when I press any key. If others see the same problem, I will file a bug.
My date and time is not syncing correctly. I have 2 opensuse 11.1 servers and on both when you adjust the time in yast, I go back into yast and the setting for the NTP server is not set and "manual" is checked. I tried many times and the setting keeps reverting back. I always click on Save NTP configuration.
I installed my linux os in vmware.I need to set time of virtual machine to later time( 2005 ).I have an application whose license expires at 2006 so I have to do this in order for it to work .but when I change it it comes back to the current time ,so what is the solution for this .
If one right-clicks on the date and time tab in Ubuntu 10.10 desktop, then there is no obvious way to change the time. If one right-clicks and goes to help, then the explanation for changing time is as follows under the category 'usage':
2.3. To Adjust the System Date or Time.
To adjust the system date or time that the Clock applet displays, perform the following steps:
1. Right-click on the applet, then choose Adjust Date & Time.
2. Type the root password, then click OK.
3. The Clock applet starts the system tool that sets the system date and time. Use the tool to adjust the date and time.
The actual way to do this is as follows:
Right-click on the date and time applet. select preferences, and down at the bottom of the window that opens push the 'time settings' button.
Then you will be able to adjust that date and time.
I was wondering if anyone has discovered a way of either using cron or by custom scripting, to run a script at a certain date and time only once. The purpose would be to make one-off changes to dns zone files, or to virtual host configs on an apache server, or changing any type of text file at say 12:01am rather than waking up at 12:01am (when our maintenance windows start) to make changes to production servers.
I set my location, but Debian displays DATE in some messed format. I would expect such neat OS to recognize all those local settings based on my location, but that's not the case. It seems that Debian follows locale settings by set language (which is en_us in my case, as I guess in majority uses) or this format is default in any case
I would like to set date/time to DD.MM.YY. hh:mm:ss, and programs that display date data to follow this setting. Simply put, in Windows there is Control Panel and you set location, then OS uses some regional settings, like currency, separators, date/time format.
I've noticed that every time this desktop is turned on the date & time are as they were the last time I used it, and then have to put in the correct date & time again (this is why I chose the word 'persistent' within the tittle). When I try to change those have to write in the password for the date as well as for the time as if 'login-in' once were not enough! What I want to know is how to put in the date & time and receive the correct amounts the next time I turn the unit on again, as it should be? Do I've to open a terminal & do it with administrator's authority/credentials?
ubuntu 10.10 64bit my system clock keeps running late, and for some reason, I can't use NTP to synchronize it.If I try to use System -> Preferences -> Administration -> Time and date I can't unlock the popup (see attached screenshot) - I can click on the little yellow lock icon but when I do so, nothing happens.I tried "sudo ntpdate..." but i get the "the NTP socket is in use, exiting" error.
