My laptop's clock (Acer Extensa 5220) seems to be slow. I've corrected it 5 minutes forward last week and now have just corrected minute forward again.
How it's better to fix it? Is there a program [apart from time servers] to correct clock properly, for example, by shifting it a bit every hour?
Is there already a program to put it to crontab or I should hack up a script? Or I should check more things?
Update: I have found that HW clock is right, but system time is slow: about a second each 2.1 hours.
root@vi-notebook:~# dmesg | egrep 'clock|unstable' [ 0.103785] Switching to clocksource tsc [ 0.265274] Marking TSC unstable due to TSC halts in idle [ 0.265514] Switching to clocksource acpi_pm [ 1.321408] rtc_cmos 00:09: setting system clock to 2010-10-30 00:10:48 UTC (1288397448)
Is placing "hwlock --hctosys" to crontab a right thing?
