I'm the proud owner of a LS200 - and thanks to M Field, I now have
slimserver 5.4 running nicely on it.
However, I've noticed that the LS seems to be 'gaining' in time - as
if the clock is running fast - in one day, it gets about 5 minutes
ahead. I wouldn't normally mind, but the SlimP3 player is the only
object in my living room that has a clock on it :-)
Any ideas ?
I've tried various different time servers via the web/config
interface - but that only updates once a day - I think I may need to
update at least 4 times a day if they 'time-gain' is this much.....
which brings me onto my main point (sorry to ramble) - can any unix
bods out there tell me how to accomplish this ?
I've not used unix for over 10 years (more like 12!) so it's just a
vague memory of cron/crontab etc (although the slimserver install
blew some of the dust from my memory).
