Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 478585
'Set date and time automatically' setting is not remembered
Last modified: 2009-01-22 11:24:54 EST
Description of problem:
In KDE system settings, the 'Set date and time automatically' option is not remembered. I enable it, click apply and close system settings. Next time I open it, the option is not selected.
I don't even know if updating time from the selected server is even working.
rdieter, than do we know if this is working and the box not just remembering the check or is it actually being forgotten?
It's almost certainly one of those things that requires privledged/root access, and it's failing silently otherwise.
Checked upstream and did not find a matching bug. Please report upstream at http://bugs.kde.org and add upstream info to this report. We will monitor for resolution.
Are you sure this is an upstream problem? My friend can't even find this option (set date/time automatically) in Arch Linux (KDE 4.1). I checked with a Debian based KDE 4.2 live CD. The option is *not* present there too.
I'm beginning to wonder if this is Fedora specific.
I've filed a bug with KDE https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=180212

Maybe they disabled this feature, it's not working for me too. I have to dig local ntp server, externals are firewalled, to test it.
Thanks for reporting this issue upstream. Will continue to monitor for resolution.
I've an update for the upstream bug report, after starting the ntpd service.
