Slackware :: Losing Hardware Clock Time While Using Wvdial On Usb Modem / Fix It?
Jul 21, 2011
Now that I'm able to connect to Internet via my MC760 wireless modem on /dev/ttyUSB0, I am losing time!
I have lost 5 minutes while online for 1/2 hr.
Yes ntpd is running. What is strange is that right now, I'm in town at coffee shop and using wireless. I'm not losing time at all. This isn't the first time I've noticed the loss of time. It's been happening every since I was able to connect with the usb modem. I just had to come to town and use wireless to see if the problem existed while on wireless (b43). While being connected via the MC760, I've also noticed that the cpu temp rises and the fan runs quite a bit more than when not connected via the MC760. Here is the top portion of output of "top" code...
When I boot into Debian (lenny) my clock is always 4 hours slow. Whether I set it manually, or set it to get it's time from the network, the next time I boot into debian, it's back to being 4 hours slow.
I've been running arch linux, with my clock set to UTC with no problem. Recently I installed slackware on a different partition. During the setup I chose to set my clock to 'local time' instead of UTC by accident. Now in slackware my clock shows the wrong time. Also in arch it shows the same wrong time.
I booted back into slackware and ran pkgtool to enter the setup again, and changed my time to UTC. But this makes no difference. My clock is still wrong in both slackware and arch. Do I need to reboot after changing my clock settings in slackware before it takes effect? how the clock or the setup works.
I post here wanting to know if it's Possible to run wvdial as soon as linux detects USB modem.I have already installed and done the setting for using wvdial. I can successfully use wvdial command to setup internet connection.But I have only 1 USB modem. When my wife wants to use it for her PC, she disconnects it from my linux machine.What I want to do now is... 1 that when I attatch the USB back to my linux, I'd want it to do "wvdial &" automatically.2 that when linux is rebooted, "wvdial &" done automatically as soon as it detects USB modem.
I have only a dial-up connection. I've been using the 32-bit version of WVDIAL and its associated programs in Karmic Koala for over a year. I recently finally got around to installing Maverick Meerkat on a different drive. The 64-bit version. I see that I need the 64-bit version of the modem software, and I haven't found it right away. Where can I get it? The programs required under 32-bit Karmic Koala:
All of these had .deb filename extensions. Also, largely because I only have a slow dial-up connection, I don't have any updates for either Karmic Koala or Maverick Meerkat installed. If you happen to know that I absolutely need some particular update(s)
I m trying to show the power of linux to the world bt no body helps me after lots of googling i cant find a proper way to install rpm,gz,bz2 n etc software in linux. without any error. dependency,error,n lots of other problem that i have faced. so being on pt..from last 3 days i m trying to install Wvdial 1.61 bt i m unable to do it. some wvstreams.pc file stoping me. i m really frusted. being a new to linux no one can expect lots of searching by me me..from last 3 days i m just trying traying n only tying..every time Google rediectes me to this site.. This is my last try.
I had compile and install Wvstream.tar.gz file sucssesfully. mainly i dnt knw wheter it is done or undone..then i m trying to install wvdial as my main aim.bt as put the command make...it show some thing like could nt found wvstreams.pc...stop i had personally chk tht file in the pkgconfig folder bt it still shows me that error. i want to connect my cell phone to RHEL5 any how.. i want to use internet in linux..
1) I have micromax 372g usb modem(3g).. but it is not being connected ubuntu 10.10 2) I suppose my device is being recognized and I tried this method [URL] but when I tried to install, it said that package missing for wvdial.
What should I do. Where can I get this package and how can I install it (with no dependany check). My life is extremely difficult without internet on ubuntu, I am ready to give any other information that u need. I have ubuntu 10.10 maverick dual boot with windows. And yes take into consideration that I don't have internet on ubuntu. So provide me full detail how to install it from other media and commands to execute them.
Today I updated a bunch of packages, rebooted. I run lucid 10.04 x86_64, originally Xubuntu but now gnome since I cannot make xfce4-panel tasklist behave with compiz. Anyway, by the end of the day my clock was 10min off. If I use ntpdate at about 10min intervals I see things like:
$ sudo ntpdate time.xxx.xxx.de 1 Jun 18:37:02 ntpdate: step time server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx offset 10.043055 sec
I have deleted /etc/adjtime and touch'd a blank file to no avail.
Is this problem serious? Is it likely software or hardware? Is running an ntp daemon the right solution or would it be masking a new software or hardware problem that appeared today?
I have a usb modem(A phone): Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E220 HSDPA Modem / E230/E270 HSDPA/HSUPA Modem It is recognized by Yast under modems.But I am getting No carrier detected on wvdial,qinternet and many I have tried with. Here is the output:
2) Then I run wvdial command but getting following o/p
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60 --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory
Running 2.6.29-gentoo-r1 on a Sun Ultrasparc 10 with a Sun Happy Meal on eth0 connected directly to my cable modem. Intermittently, with a frequency between a few hours and a few days, I lose internet connectivity. Running ifconfig eth0 indicates all is well and I have a valid IP address but I cannot even ping the cable modem's management address; pings to 127.0.0.1 and eth0's IP address do get a reply but no other address I've tried does. I can 'fix' the problem by issuing
If I check the CM logs, it appears that it has rebooted itself prior to the loss of connectivity. The strange thing is that the incoming traffic doesn't seem to be affected by this, my PSAD log is full of incoming scans even during the periods when I can't connect to the net. I suspect this is an ISP problem (they own the CM);
When installing I perhaps mistakingly told Fedora it should use the BIOS clock and now it shows the wrong time, 1 hour ahead of my time-zone GMT+0. If I try and go to the preferences and set the time the 'Advanced Options' one of which I need are grayed out, I need the 'Use local time source' option to be unchecked. Could somebody tell me a workaround or the command-line commands to tell it not to do this anymore?
Trying to adjust my clock settings!I am running KDE 4.4.3 on Squeeze, on an 64bit laptop.(I used the AMD64 net install version)How can I fix the time settings so it shows 5:00pm instead of 17:00:00So far I have not been able to find a cure
I have dual boot on my comp. Windows XP and Fedora 11 Now in both systems time zone is set to Belgrade ( which is my time zone), but when I setup clock in fedora to be, let's say 16.15h, then when I swich to windows it says time is 14.15h. When I setup in windows on 16.15h, and I swich to fedora, it says time is 18.15h. So I can't get accurate time on both systems in no way.
By default, Fedora 11 sets my clock to military time. For example it says 16:22. I would like it to show civilian time (or at least know how to do it) I logged into the clock settings and had to put in the root password, but couldn't find where you do this. If you scroll on the time for hours, it just goes from 0 to 23 and back, not to AM and PM like some others.
I done searches for "clock" and found similar threads, but no real fix that is working for me. My clock resets when I boot into linux. It does not happen in windows or bios even on cold boots. The battery is replaced and good** the old battery was by all measures dead (0.6v), but still seemed to have enough power for the clock, since windows tested fine with it.
I have tryed setting it to local time, UTC.. etc... My timezone is GMT (london). "sudo /sbin/hwclock --systohc" Although I have windows, I do not use it except the few times to test this, so no conflict.
Try as I might I cannot seem to get the system clock to display local time. It looks like it's stuck on GMT. In the System>Administration>Time and Date I have my local time zone set correctly and also set to update automatically with an appropriate time server selected. It still displays my local time +5 hours (I'm central time, USA).
I restored my .kde directory after changing some stuff unrelated to my clock and now all plasma clocks are exactly 5 hours faster than my system time (the correct time).I've set the time zone for Date&Time in System Settings properly and that's working well and I've ALSO gone into the time zone settings for the plasma widgets and switched between UTC and Local manually but that doesn't do anything.
I'm running windows 7 and the F12 Beta (although the same issue existed in my f11 distro) on an asus g71 bb. When ever I boot into windows my time is correct. If I boot into to F12 my time is wrong. Usually by 4 hours. If I change it in Linux when I boot into windows I end up switching the time on my windows partition. I tried searching the forum (rather casual I'll admit) and couldn't find any solutions.
I'd like to have two gnome clock applets, one with the regular default time and date in the upper right hand corner (the default) and another set to epoch time. However, I can't figure out how to set the second gnome clock applet to display the epoch time. I'm running FC12.
Dual boot system. Boot Linux Fedora 13 and the hardware clock is set to GMT. Boot Windows 7, time is wrong, as it expects the hardware clock to be set to the local time. reset the hardware clock each time I reboot in to the other O/S.
I have this problem for a while but didn't notice it until lately(i did reboot the machine for few months). Now that i reboot it frequently i notice that the clock is always not what is supposed to be. I'm in Toronto, Canada so it should be GMT -5:00. Sometimes it shows GMT-6, sometimes -10, now is GMT -11. Anyone would know why i have this issue? I'm running Suse11.1 on a 64 bit. My laptop which runs on 32 bit is working fine.(well probably different versions for kernel and kde.(whatever was in th repository to be updated i updated)
