I'm new to Puppy Linux, I am trying to figure out how I can install a Network Time Protocol Daemon (NTPd) on my installation of Puppy 2.15 CE. NTPd is not currently listed in the PETget Package Manager.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Don't think there is such and animal for Puppy. You might try downloading MU's Gslapt utility to access the Slackware repos and search for it there.

Hope that helps.

Second call: paging Doctor Bash. Stat.

Download/install "rdate" - I'm pretty sure there's a dotpup, pupget, petget, or whatever the add-on du jour moniker is ...

Code:

#!/bin/sh
# set_time.sh
# sets hwclock to nist and syncs localtime to hwclock
# December 15, 2006 jwb
#
# replace ntp0.cornell.edu with appropriate second tier
# server for your time zone
#
# was rdate -p -s 129.6.15.28
#
rdate -p -s ntp0.cornell.edu
hwclock --systohc --localtime


Stick script in a cron job or in the start up script and fuggetaboudit.
