#1237 closed defect (fixed)

ntpclient missing, causing "Sync Time" to fail silently

Reported by: pipatron Owned by: dos
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: shr-settings Version: SHR-unstable
Keywords: ntpclient Cc:


After making sure I have a working network connection I tried to sync the time using the Date/Time? settings GUI to the default NTP server (, and nothing happens. After trying a few times I see that Xsession.log has changed, and I can see this:

sh: ntpclient: not found

we now use busybox's ntpd, which is included by default.
So it should now work.
if it doesn't,re-open the bug
