I'm on Debian testing.
My system clock is off by about 5 minutes though i set date & time to adjust automatically. I get a "Unable to contact time server: ." when i do the following:
- * go into the Date & Time KDE Control Module
* uncheck "Set date and time automatically"
* recheck "Set date and time automatically"
* hit "Apply"
* enter the root-password in the upcoming password request
* click "OK"
Pinging the selected time server works perfectly and there is no firewall or something like that.
I have already googled for the problem and found a few bug reports (not Debian specific) concerning this issue but they are old and none of them contain a solution. Does anyone have an idea what this could be or what i can do?
