I had the problem below when Linux was set to GMT..after I set it to
local time..this issue went away and it would synch. *shrug*

}=}I would recommend to start and stop it every time you go online/offline.

}=}much use for keeping it running. Anyway - how exact do you want your
}=}system clock to be? I simply run "ntpdate" every time I connect to the
}=}net. It's not like the clock is going to drift for hours if you are
}=}disconnected for a day :)
