The date command matches the POSIX.1 spec so it's not going to change. But if you want to make your own private version that works differently, the source code is here: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-src/tree/main/bin/date

I use date command formats to detail my XFCE system-tray clock. However, weekdays are 0 to 6. I'd like to be able to numbers them 1 to 7. No programmer/sysadmin/scientist/professor who uses UNIX[-based] operating systems ever said 'ze

An easy test would be to disable ntpd (probably by commenting "ntp_enable=YES" out of rc.conf). If the delay goes away, you know for sure that starting ntpd really is your problem. If the system starts fine without ntpd, you can then tr

Is ntpd pointed at a valid ntp server? Is the date and system clock in the BIOS set correctly (I vaguely recall you need /etc/localtime).
