System Time faster than real Time

Recommended Posts

I have noticed when I leave my hackintosh turned on that when I return the Time is faster than normal time.

For example

This morning at 8 am I noticed the time was 34 minutes faster than real time, So I opened up time preferances and just that action alone forced a re-sync of the time with the time server I have set (Europe).

I came home 9 hours later to find the time again had lost sync with +12 minutes over the real time and again just opening up time preferances forced a re-sync.

I understand Apple did something with ntpd and pacemaker in 10.9 Mavericks but how can one fix this annoying bug?

Well here is the fix.

In terminal execute the following commands

cd /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
sudo mv
sudo crontab -l > /tmp/foo
echo '*/5 * * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate -s -B -u' >> /tmp/foo
sudo crontab /tmp/foo
