Ubuntu Servers :: System Time Runs Slow Hareware Time Run Right?

Apr 11, 2011

I am running my Ubuntu 32 bit server on top of Windows 7 64 bit with VirualBox. It's a 2 core Atom. It's been working good for about half a year. But the last about 6 weeks the system time only in Ubuntu is going slow. About -8 per 24 hours! I can only guess because I have more things running in my Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

I can set it right by coping the hareware time to system time with this command:

hwclock --hctosys

I want to run a crontab to have that command run every minute. But it don't seem to run.

Software :: Why System Clock Runs Faster Than Hardware Time

Jan 23, 2011

My server is a VPS which is running with CentOS. I found a wield problem that the system clock always runs faster than the hardware clock. For example, I set system clock and hardware clock both on 20:00. After about half an hour, the system clock will be 20:34/5 which is wrong while the hardware clock remains correct (20:30).

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Notices That There Are Updates For The Server Software From Time To Time?

Mar 29, 2010

I have several file servers in our offices and I am relatively new to Ubuntu / Linux. I get notices that there are updates for the server software from time to time. Is it typical to update everything when available or should I follow "If it ain't broke, don't fix it..." mentality?I would hate for everything to be working fine and then have an update throw me a curve.

General :: Short A Time Can Time (system Program) Measure?

Apr 15, 2010

I'm just wondering what the limits for time are. I have a program that always takes exactly 20 ms, so I assume this is the lowest it can measure, but I want to see if there's some sort of documentation of this.

Ubuntu Servers :: System Time Getting Off

Jun 29, 2011

Not sure when this started exactly. I just had comcast installed last Thursday, had AT&T before that with about a week and half with no internet in between. Other than that, I haven't changed anything. I noticed on Monday that my system time is off, and it keeps happening. I've never had an issue with this before. I'd run sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org to update, would be fine, and then it would end up being about 8 minutes fast again the next day (CRON was firing off early and I was getting system emails early). System has been up for about a week, so its not happening when rebooting. I just setup cron to do an ntp update every hour. I let it run and here is the output.


One thing I guess, any thoughts on why my system time was getting off track in the first place. And two, any issue with how I setup cron and the log entries from syslog?

I installed Fedora 15 yesterday. Took a few hours to get used to the Gnome 3 interface, and I love it.I noticed that my fan seems to be running all the time irrespective of system load, even when it's idle.An internet search yielded this supposedly resolved issue where the fan ran constantly on systems with Intel integrated graphicsLike that link states, I am running the latest updatedl kernel-, but the fan running continuously issue still persists.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Real-time (or Near Real-time) Folder Synchronization Among 2+ Servers

Mar 23, 2010

what the recommended way to set up real-time (or near real-time) folder synchronization among 2+ servers. I looked a rsync but that doesn't sound real-time and it looks like its something that you might put in a cron once an hour.

CentOS 5 :: Cron Job Runs At Incorrect Time - Clocks Seem Ok

Mar 9, 2010

Within a VMWare ESX virtual machine, I am running CentOS 5.2. (Actually, it is kind of a virtual appliance to run CollabNet's Teamforge - which I have installed for a trial). I've been dabling with Linux for a year or so, but I know I have much to learn.

I'm attempting to run a cron job that runs a backup script at 11pm. It works great, but unfortunately it runs at 11:30 am.

I created the cron job using 'crontab -e', while logged in as root. My cron job line is : 0 23 * * 1,2,3,4,5 /etc/tjt_backup/collabnet_backup.sh

If I type 'date', I get the correct date/time in my timezone: Tue Mar 9 16:27:12 CST 2010

If I type 'clock', I also get the correct date/time: Tue 09 Mar 2010 04:26:57 PM CST -0.463330 seconds

(Although, it appears there is a little drift)

Fedora :: Slow Boot Time / "Starting System Message Bus"?

Dec 14, 2009

My fedora 11 (2.6.30-102) spends a long time while initializing services on

"Starting system message bus:"

---------- Post added at 08:47 PM CST ---------- Previous post was at 06:33 PM CST ----------

Auth is LDAP.

There's a 3.5 years old bug in redhat bugs database, that's still not resolved,regarding dbus trying to use ldap auth, before ldap service is started.Workaround is to change ldap config to soft binding.

3.5 years for a bug that affect enterprise users - are you there redhat?

Fedora Servers :: Check In Dates Getting Changed / Updated To System Time

Jun 21, 2011

I am using the default CVS available in Fedora 9. I initiated the CVS server by
cvs -d /usr/local/cvsproj init
To check-in and check-out the following exports commands are used
export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVSROOT=:ext:swathi@SERVER:/usr/local/cvsproj

I shall explain problem by taking an example. A project was checked in long before (for example the checkin date is 25 Feb 2010). And today (i.e. 21 June 2011) I checked out the project from the repository. After checkout, the date of the project in the repository is changed from 25 Feb 2010 to 21 June 2011. This date is set to all the subfolders in that project. But the files in the project retains the checking date i.e. 25 Feb 2010. Why the check-in dates are getting updated/changed to the system time after doing check-out.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Does Take Relatively Long Time To Load On 'slow' PC

Jan 29, 2010

I have been using Karmic as a tool to extract important data from Windows Operating Systems where say viruses have necessitated a complete reinstall. I run the Karmic install disk and use the 'try before installing'option. It works well and I am able to 'rescue' anything I want by saving to a USB drive.Problem is that Karmic does take a relatively long time to load on a 'slow' PC.Does anyone have any suggestions on a 'slimmed down' Ubuntu that could be used in the same way which will load up quickly ?In most circumstances all I want to do is mount the C Drive of the stuffed PC and copy files to an external USB drive.

Ubuntu :: Slow Boot Time Since Upgrade To Natty?

Jul 17, 2011

I've seen this issue mentioned before, but it appears their cause was different than mine.Here is a snippet of my dmesg log:

[ 2.797917] cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
[ 2.798077] sr 3:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
[ 2.798149] sr 3:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5[code]....

I'm not exactly sure what that is or why that's causing it to take so long to do.

Ubuntu :: After Log In Takes Long Time To Show Desktop, Monitor Events At Log In Time?

May 24, 2011

It takes me a while to log in the splash screen just sits there for ages before i get to the desktop. Never used to be this slow and I'm not sure why. Firstly, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, standard DE. I do have conky starting up in a script but it has the & at the end of the line so I didn't think this would cause it (or is there some special case for log in time on how & is treated?). However as a test I will comment out the line in the script and see if it is the cause.

However just for general knowledge and in case that isn't the problem, how does one go seeing what is happening during the time from when one log's in and the desktop is displayed? Is there some kind of log that shows the date/time that can be enabled or is there a debug mode that can be enabled somehow via special keys or maybe from grub?

Ubuntu :: IPhone 4.2.1 - Syncing Time Extremely Slow (5 Hours)

Jan 20, 2011

My wife and I have:
iPhone 16GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken)
iPhone 32GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken)
We're running Ubuntu 10.10 and syncing our phones with Rhythmbox 0.13.1. It's painfully slow and skips songs sometimes. For 1500 songs, it's taking up to 5 hours. This is insane. I updated my apt sources and can mount our phones just fine. Syncing slowly is the only issue. I've read a ton of other reads about iPods having this issue as well, but not only were those issues never resolved by I haven't seen one with the actual iPhone.

Ubuntu :: Screen / Everything Freezes From Time To Time For No Reason In Natty?

May 4, 2011

Ever since I installed Ubuntu Natty, from time to time, for no particular reason, the entire computer screen freezes, and I am forced to hold the power button on my laptop to restart things with a hard reset. I cannot explain why it happens.

Such an issue never occurred in any of the past installations and versions of Ubuntu. This is a fresh installation of Natty by the way.

Also, I can currently be running a lot or nothing and it does this. Thus, it does not matter what I am actually doing (ie, what programs I might be running).

It has occurred about 10 times since I freshly installed Natty 6 days ago.

(currently I can see the Kubuntu one)- how can I turn the splash off and have it boot in text mode?
