Time always resets after reboot in OpenSUSE 12.1/KDE 4.6
Every time I reboot, it's always off by 4 - 5 hours. I've set the timezone to New York (EST), and the BIOS is right. But still it will not keep the right time. I've used the command line to set the date, time and timezone (Sun Mar 11 18:12:06 EST 2012) So it's set right, but instead of 18h, it's nearly 23h as I write this.
In the settings/date & Time - system settings, I tell it to set date and time automatically, using the north-America.pool.ntp.org server.
But every time I reboot, it's the same problem. The time is at least 4 hours to 5 hours wrong. The little clock widget on KDE 4.6 also shows the same time as the command line time.
Oddly enough even Windows on the same machine has had problems. I have a little program that resets the time via an internet connection under Windows, but Linux will not work.
Anyone know how to fix this for good?

There should be some information as to what's not working in your log files. First check if it's logging statistics:
grep log /etc/ntp.conf
If it's not logging, edit the file
sudo nano /etc/ntp.conf

I forgot, you might also get lucky and find something in /var/log/messages or /var/log/daemon.log concerning NTP.
