Re: Does Fedora mess up the clock for Windows?



With the way the clock drift is happening, it sounds like a time
zone setting problem. Both Linux and Windows XP will slowly adjust
the clock to match the NTP server. Now, if the time zone setting is
wrong, the system will gain/lose time as it runs, until it matches.
Running the AtomTime95 program under windows would probably make
things worse by fighting with the NTP program windows is already
running. Making sure that the time zone is the same under both
Windows and Linux, making sure it is the correct time zone, and not
using AtomTime95 should fix the problem.

I'm confused about this one.  I don't see time zone settings being the
issue as that would cause the time to be off by an hour (or two, or
whatever depending on the time zone) not drift by a few minutes to
100+ minutes over the course of a few hours.  And Windows or Linux
would not slowly adjust the clock to match NTP, it synchronizes with
it and changes it to match.  What would be the reason for Windows or
Linux slowly changing the time to synch up with NTP?  It's not a bad
suggestion to check and make sure that they have the same time zone
settings.  But that would not account for clock "drifting".
