Hi Trio,

oops, all OK now, changed line in pet.

If there are going to be any more changes I assume they will be cosmetic and it will be full version 1 then.

It has been tweaked now to handle large offsets as it starts with date first not time. Before, if there was a date discrepency it would hold computer for quite a while as it crept everything up to time.

Strangely, if the offset is different by an amount larger than say 3 minutes then the time set will blank the display for some time whilst it resets the time. It can be minutes or so before desktop returns.
Just wiggle the mouse and it will come right back.

Posted version 1.0 just a small change to display text and to help file.

I assume this will be the final version as I can see no further alterations required.

Hi Tasmod

Am I here too late - or too soon?
I set the time zone (London)
then ran the program.

I had lost an hour
clocks here don't go back until 25 October
I had to check with a live BBC news feed to get the time

Is there something that your program needs to do
or can I now close down the tmxxine project? Smile
and know I am in the past watching a future BBC broadcast . . .

Set your timezone to Europe/London; NOT to GMT.

Lobster:
And assuming you have set it, as you said above, to Europe/London not GMT offset then don't forget to reboot for it to take effect.

Also I believe you have to have set the locale correctly.

Running on 214X15 happily now and just did a re-sync to ensure it didn't get confused as to when the clocks go back.

Cheers
Dave

Updated version Psync 1.1

Once choice has been made for time server, then the next window presents a choice of whether you want the time automatically synchronised at every boot.

Dear tasmod,

With kind regards,

Tasmod -
Excellent program! Installed it in Lucid Puppy 5.1 and it worked perfectly, even before rebooting. A very useful utility for my old laptop that has a weak CMOS battery and no main battery.!

The only drawback has more to do with the always poor (but slowly getting better) wireless support in Puppy. I've never been able to get any Puppy version to re-establish a wireless connection upon reboot, and have always had to step through one of the wireless wizards. That means there is no Internet connection when Psync tries to contact a time server.

But being able to set the date and time with a couple of mouse clicks is fantastic!

Many Thanks!

Thanks.

I did think about this just the other day as i was playing with a Luci iso.

However I've stopped with it for now. I will look again but I consider it would be better to get a persistent wireless rather than mod my app.

Version 1.2 needed as Lucid uses a symlink to the TimeZone information. Unless you are using Lucid Puppy or a 4 series Puppy , I would suggest staying with 1.1.

Version 1.3.

Updated due to change in way the selected time server reports back when time is set. This gave an incorrect text in the final window.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Nov 2010, 23:35    Post_subject: optional time server
Sub_title: a request
 

@tasmod
Thanks for the useful tool.
I have a request adding new feature, hope you concider.

I have own time server in my home LAN.
The DHCP server provides the IP or hostname of the time server, and the dhcpcd leaves it on the file /etc/ntp.conf.
The /etc/ntp.conf in my case:
Code:
# Generated by dhcpcd for interface eth0
restrict default noquery notrust nomodify
restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict 192.168.11.2 nomodify notrap noquery
server 192.168.11.2

(Lupu/LupQ-511 doesn't leave /etc/ntp.conf, maybe depends on the setting of the /etc/dhcpcd.conf.)

Can we use the information if available?
I guess it is not popular but some internet provider provides their own time server.

Or, how about to make an entry box to enter the time server as an option?

Version 1.4. Yet again the servers have changed the text sent back. This time I've attempted to trap another change without user noticing.

=====

Shinobar, sorry I missed your post.

Psync uses ntpdate and pool servers to synchronise time. I didn't write the 'fetch' routine so I am unable to change Psync for a local server.
