I haven't been following this thread closely and assuming xntp is being
used to synchronise the clocks. I've installed a new motherboard and I
am seeing clock drift possibly because of a low battery, though ACPI is
not reporting anything. I've had to edit crontab "crontab -e -u root"
and insert the following line to keep my clock synched.
* * * * * /usr/sbin/ntptimeset -S 1 -s >/dev/null 2>&1
Regards
Sid.
