According to [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=150415 this post in the forum], the hwclock daemon is not necessary anymore thanks to systemd, so I'm willing to update this page unless someone have a objection. [[User:Tae|Tae]] ([[User talk:Tae|talk]]) 20:53, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

===Update i18n links===

I find this article quite confusing.  My use case is simply that I want to make sure my machine time is sync'd.  I'd suggest that at (or near) the top of the article (before the section on setting up a server) you have info on the canonical approach for this.  The part where this is at the moment is quite bad.
Note that the i18n links still point to "Network Time Protocol" instead of "Network Time Protocol daemon": this should be changed if also the other wikis split the original article like this. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 16:58, 11 February 2011 (EST)

What's the canonical approach daemon or no daemon?

Once selected, what's all the warnings about hwclock.  Again, canonical.  If hwclock needs to be turned off, just state that, not in RED!  Hope those comments help the article???  Also there are references to rc.conf...shouldn't this be deprecated?  Up front, on top, the systemd approach probably.

I find this article quite confusing. My use case is simply that I want to make sure my machine time is sync'd. I'd suggest that at (or near) the top of the article (before the section on setting up a server) you have info on the canonical approach for this. The part where this is at the moment is quite bad.

What's the canonical approach daemon or no daemon?

Once selected, what's all the warnings about hwclock. Again, canonical. If hwclock needs to be turned off, just state that, not in RED! Hope those comments help the article??? Also there are references to rc.conf...shouldn't this be deprecated? Up front, on top, the systemd approach probably.
