If the clock is way off, you need to do this manual step because otherwise ntp will not change your clock and will not tell you why.# apt-get install fake-hwclock fake-hwclock: Save/restore system clock on machines without working RTC hardware Some machines don't have a working realtime clock (RTC) unit, or no driver for the hardware that does exist.
fake-hwclock is a simple set of scripts to save the kernel's current clock periodically (including at shutdown) and restore it at boot so that the system clock keeps at least close to realtime.
