Acer Aspire One Clock Adjust

Posted by Tejus Parikh on March 26, 2009

Since the time change, I’ve been having an issue with the clock on my Aspire One. Everytime it sleeps, the clock is exactly one hour in the past. It wasn’t a timezone problem, since running date correctly showed the time as EDT The fix for this is to run the follow two commands:

$ sudo ntpdate

$ sudo hwclock --systohc

This will sync your hardware clock to the time from the network time service.
