This article has been created after splitting "Network Time Protocol" into this and OpenNTPD as discussed [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=112698 here] -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 16:03, 11 February 2011 (EST)
==<s> Syncing at boot </s> ==
I'm wondering if it's ok to mention {{ic|{ ntpd -qg; hwclock -w; } }} in [[Network Time Protocol daemon#Synchronize once at boot time]] as the main method and using the hwclock daemon only as an alternative, although the latter is an official daemon provided by initscripts.
And in any case, the two methods don't seem equivalent, in fact the hwclock daemon just runs {{ic|hwclock --adjust}} at shutdown.
This discussion is also related to [[Talk:Time#hwclock daemon]].

:I think it should be first written without hwclock (as it should be for default config), and then noted that you should check if hwclock is launched, not the other way around like it is now. -- [[User:Corvinus|Corvinus]] 00:42, 21 January 2012 (EST)
::I've tried to reword the section a bit in that direction. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 08:32, 21 January 2012 (EST)
:::Corvinus, I've decided to partly revert one of your recent edits: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Network_Time_Protocol_daemon&curid=10908&diff=179719&oldid=179586]. Read the explanation I've added in the edit summary and if you don't agree we can of course discuss that here :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 12:46, 22 January 2012 (EST)
::::Alright, you're correct. But what I wanted is to have a clear link at the top of article about how to set time just now. It's sad if that's not possible with current layout. -- [[User:Corvinus|Corvinus]] 02:57, 23 January 2012 (EST)
:::::I see, you have a point too indeed... However the name of the main section, "Using without daemon", may be enough to arouse the curiosity of those looking for a way to synchronize just once. Also the fact that the section is placed before the one about using the daemon should help. However there's surely room for improvement, and ideas are welcome! -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 07:48, 23 January 2012 (EST)
