http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am running Voyage Linux (a Debian-based distribution) and am having trouble getting the correct date. When I look in /var/log/daemon.log I see the following: Nov 18 11:04:07 voyage ntpdate[1676]: step time server offset 2141299826.398106 sec Aug 20 17:06:20 voyage ntpdate[1710]: step time server offset 2141299826.401065 sec Jun 28 06:36:47 voyage ntpdate[1744]: step time server offset 2141299826.460901 sec The correct date is Nov 18 11:04:07 but it is getting changed to the middle of June. How can I fix this? (HowTos)
