Updating linux time
This slight inaccuracy is easily managed by NTP even if it is only set to update the servers time once per day (or even less frequent than that).
One of your comments says you are running on a vhost.
I think you may be mis-understanding the exact degree to which this issue affects NTP clients in a virtualized environment.
Waiting for clock tick.....clock tick Time read from Hardware Clock: 2014/08/29 Hw clock time : 2014/08/29 = 1409279316 seconds since 1969Fri Aug 29 2014 -0.450330 seconds~ It's not even Friday yet for me, nor is it . I tried ntpd -qg, editing the /etc/file for servers in my area I followed this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?
This will make the clock run faster, or slower, than is really happening. And all the other answers are just misleading IMHO.
Since ntp is trying to measure changes on the assumption that your clock is a fixed-rate faster or slower than the rest of the world, this speeding up and slowing down will give ntp fits and it will probably eventually just give up, with the result that indicated, that the system is already synchronized. Just give it more time and a little star will appear. But ntpd doesn't usually sync in one big jump (like ntpdate), but tries to adjust the time slowly and ensures over several cycles, that the time is stable. ntpd is even recommended by VMWare to keep the time in sync.
"didn't work" does not tell us anything, other than it's very likely that there is something else wrong with your time configuration, and telling you how to disable ntpd won't fix is the output of Need more information.

What wiki topics or forum posts have you read about this common problem (time not right)? "didn't work" does not tell us anything, other than it's very likely that there is something else wrong with your time configuration, and telling you how to disable ntpd won't fix is the output of Output:hwclock from util-linux 2.25Using the /dev interface to the clock.
Most servers are probably automatically configured to network time, but if you want to set it up for yourself, or want to change the servers that you are syncing to, here’s the quick article that shows you how to do it.
