According to the recommendation on Arch Wiki, I set my hardware clock to UTC. And here is the result of
timedatectl status on my machine when just booted:
Local time: Tue 2013-07-02 15:38:03 CST Universal time: Tue 2013-07-02 07:38:03 UTC Timezone: Asia/Shanghai (CST, +0800) NTP enabled: yes NTP synchronized: no RTC in local TZ: no DST active: n/a
At this moment, the time display on panel is UTC, only after a while(about 10 minutes), the
NTP synchronized will eventually change to
yes, then I have CST on the panel. So how can I force the NTP sync as soon as booting?
