Thanks,

I believe this is due to the settings in /etc/conf.d/clock

For me, the appropriate changes are:
CLOCK="UTC"
---- to -----
CLOCK='local'

and

# TIMEZONE="Factory"
----- to (remember to remove the commenting symbol) -----
TIMEZONE="CST6CDT"

As per the directions in the file comments, TIMEZONE is basically the name of the file in /usr/share/zoneinfo (with the subdirectory name in front, if applicable) that you have set up as your /etc/localtime file.

Thanks that did the trick. Are you also getting errors with sytem-tools-backends not starting?

It sounds familiar, but I've found myself growing accustomed to the odd error/warning every here and there ever though I shouldn't.

I do see that 'rc-update show' displays the following:
Code: Select all
# rc-update show
 * Broken runlevel entry: /etc/runlevels/default/system-tools-backends
 ....

So, I assume I am getting that error.

I know I could remove the error using 'rc-update del', but I'll probably leave it there until I get around to confirming whether it's something I need to fix or delete.

I just want to add that wolfden posted here that this solution for unmasking baselayout is only valid for 32bit versions. On 64bit, apparently the best bet is to just unmerge makedev, and leave baselayout alone.

But, for the 95th time now, I've pooped all over my config files so I might have to start from scratch again before I can test this.

EDIT: So going back to baselayout-1.12.10-r4 and replacing any updated /etc/init.d files un-pooped my system. Still haven't done world update yet though.

No I can not confirm this, that was just my experience.

If someone is still interested in this issue, please take a look at this thread, and see my solution. Also, I started a separate thread since the main problem wasn't actually the same as the one here, and also I've got problems with wireless networking now, so I'd be grateful if someone can help me out.
