On each boot into Arch, I see that the time is off by a few minutes. The RTC time is off (as far as I understood, it has "drifted".) and affects the hardware clock.
$ timedatectl status Local time: Mo 2018-02-12 12:45:18 CET Universal time: Mo 2018-02-12 11:45:18 UTC RTC time: Mo 2018-02-12 11:45:18 Time zone: Europe/Berlin (CET, +0100) System clock synchronized: no systemd-timesyncd.service active: no RTC in local TZ: no
EDIT Upon writing this post, I did not realize that the time values above this line are coherent to another. However they have an offset to my watch and smartphone time which is the aforementioned 7 minutes.
And my locale:
$ locale LANG=de_DE.utf8 LC_CTYPE="de_DE.utf8" LC_NUMERIC="de_DE.utf8" LC_TIME="de_DE.utf8" LC_COLLATE="de_DE.utf8" LC_MONETARY="de_DE.utf8" LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.utf8" LC_PAPER="de_DE.utf8" LC_NAME="de_DE.utf8" LC_ADDRESS="de_DE.utf8" LC_TELEPHONE="de_DE.utf8" LC_MEASUREMENT="de_DE.utf8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="de_DE.utf8" LC_ALL=
So far I am very reluctant to use
hwclock --hctosys as the man page states:
This function should never be used on a running system. Jumping system time will cause problems, such as corrupted filesystem timestamps. Also, if something has changed the Hardware Clock, like NTP's '11 minute mode', then --hctosys will set the time incorrectly by including drift compensation.
As far as I can tell, I configured Windows 10 correctly. Is there something I am missing or did I not set the clock up correctly?
