    Several Arch problems


    I just switched from Gentoo to Arch (and I'm loving it!), but I have two minor problems:

    1) My clock is an hour behind. I have HARDWARECLOCK="UTC", TIMEZONE="US/Central", and I use ntpd on startup. Any ideas how to fix this?

    2) Pypanel doesn't work; python-xlib seems to be broken. Has anyone gotten it to work correctly on Arch, and if so, how did you do it?

    Thanks!

    I fixed problem #1 by editing /etc/ntp.conf and changing the NTP server, but problem #2 persists. Any clues on how to fix it?

    Thanks again!

    For problem #2 this worked for me:

    Open the following file:

    /usr/lib/python<version>/site-packages/Xlib/protocol/display.py

    and change line 530 from...

    Code:
    recv = self.socket.recv(2048 )
    to...

    Code:
    recv = self.socket.recv(4096)
