Code: [Select]
$ ./configure --with-ssl
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock

How to set system clock? ntpclient not available for piCore 6 yet...

Hi eno
Try the  date  command. If you are running a GUI, see if there's a Control Panel icon and click on the  Date/Time  button.

Im running a headless/keyboardless server so no GUI and very very minimal install - I only have openssh and cron running :-) so there are some system-level things I need to add/configure.

Hi eno
In that case you want the date command. It's used to set the date and the time. Enter:
Code: [Select]
date --helpfor more info.

If you are building programs on an NFS mount you need to keep the times syncronized.  You really need a time server that all machines sync from.

Does the Raspberry Pi hardware have a RTC that could be used at boot?

Im not using NFS but I should probably use ntp. The problem is its not available for piCore 6 yet:

Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -wi ntp
Downloading: ntp.tcz
Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
md5sum: ntp.tcz.md5.txt: No such file or directory
Error on ntp.tcz
$



Ill run date manually for now, thanks.

BusyBox ntpd applet is part of the base, it used to set time during startup. Also you can runt it as a daemon to keep time in sync.

There are several options, so it is up to you. You can run it once to update system time as piCore is doing or you can run as a daemon:

Code: [Select]
sudo ntpd -p pool.ntp.org
Of course you can define a different server or you can script it to use /etc/sysconfig/ntpserver.

Thanks, I added ntpd to bootlocal.sh - easiest fastest simplest solution.
