Sabayon 5 and clock/time problem

Post by trouxx » Sat Oct 10, 2009 11:29


First of all sorry for my bad english

After i install sabayon 5 gnome i have a trouble. Desktop clocks give me 2 hours more than i have. In a console i try with date ... no problem date and time ok but i see in kalarm and widgets 2 hours more ( if i have 12:00 in my clock i see in this widgets/programs 14:00 for example ) . I have debian and win xp in my pc and everything is fine and bios clock ok too

You should install ntp and set clock to be synchronized with servers, but ones YOU choose.

Check /etc/conf.d/hwclock has:

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

If you're in Spain it's necessary to have the following In the file /etc/timezone:

Code: Select all

and it is also necessary to do:

Code: Select all

# cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Madrid /etc/localtime
Look in the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo to see the timezones that are available.

:arrow: Clock, Time, UTC, Dual boot with Windows (it's still applicable even if you don't dual boot with Windows)
