[SOLVED] NTP time is slightly wrong.

Postby chris_debian on Fri Feb 04, 2011 9:23 am

Hi, all!

The time on my LMDE box is slightly wrong. I think LMDE uses NTP and the time that I see is about 5 minutes out. Does anyone know how to correct/ resync this?

Any help appreciated.




NTP package now installed. No wonder it didn't work. My fault!

Did you install the ntp package yourself? If not, ntp is not in the default install. You may wish to verify this.
