Ubuntu :: Need To Make System Stop Updating BIOS Clock To UTC Time

Jan 22, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.04.1 32bit installed on my flash drive so wherever I go I can have my own mini personal computer, but one problem I'm having is every computer it is run on the next time it's rebooted to the OS on the hard drive it has UTC time instead of the actual time for the timezone you're in that Windows uses. So is their a way I can make Ubuntu not automatically change the clock to what it wants?

Ubuntu :: Clock Applet 2.30.2 Not Updating Time / Solve This?

Dec 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.2 and I've got a problem with the Clock 2.30.2 applet not updating the time.

The only way I can get this to work is after logging on, removing the applet from the panel & the adding it back again. Not really a satisfactory "fix".

Ubuntu :: System Clock Will Not Set To Local Time

Aug 15, 2010

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).

Ubuntu :: Plasma Clock Not Same As System Time

Feb 16, 2011

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.

Software :: Cron Clock Is An Hour Off To System Time

Mar 31, 2010

I have cron jobs running and the timing is critical, because I'm running Nessus scans on production servers. If I hit them at the wrong time, I'm toast. But when I check the cron log, I see that it is an hour off. Here is the output for the command "clock":
Wed 31 Mar 2010 03:01:26 PM CDT -0.257677 seconds

And this is the tail of the cron log:
Mar 31 16:00:01 nes-001 CROND[8790]: (root) CMD (/Nessus/Targets/NessusScriptDataCenterScan.test)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 CROND[8822]: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8822]: starting 0anacron
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Anacron started on 2010-03-31
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Normal exit (0 jobs run)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8834]: finished 0anacron

Cron thinks it is 4:00 p.m., but it's really 3:00 p.m. How do I tell Cron what time it is? (Stopping and restarting the crond service did not change it.)

Software :: Why System Clock Runs Faster Than Hardware Time

Jan 23, 2011

My server is a VPS which is running with CentOS. I found a wield problem that the system clock always runs faster than the hardware clock. For example, I set system clock and hardware clock both on 20:00. After about half an hour, the system clock will be 20:34/5 which is wrong while the hardware clock remains correct (20:30).

Software :: Hardware Clock Differs From System Time After Setting

Feb 26, 2009

I'm setting the hardware clock on RHEL 5.1 system using /sbin/hwclock --systohc. After setting the clock I issue a date command followed by a /sbin/hwclock --show from within a script to get fast resolution and I see that the hardware clock precedes the system time on average by .5 seconds. I would think the clock should be identical after setting.

Ubuntu :: BIOS Clock Running Fast

Dec 18, 2010

I have a Dell OptiPlex GX1 (CPU: Pentium II, 500Mhz). It's very old, and a while ago I installed an old version of Ubuntu on it. While it is switched on and booted up, everything is fine, however the trouble is when it is switched off, or just in BIOS.

The BIOS clock appears to be running at about 60x speed (eg minutes like seconds, hours like minutes). This happens both when switched off and when observing the clock from the BIOS menu. I really don't know what to do about this, and it's causing alot of problems, I've even had it get to the point where the system clock reset itself and would not recognise the OS as valid.

Ubuntu :: Clock Applet Not Updating

Feb 20, 2011

I used gconf-editor to change the format of the date and time displayed on the panel (I wanted sort-able strings for pasting into a table of OpenOffice base, since base can not automatically insert the current timestamp value into a column with the create time of its table row).which is not the default formatting, and the gconf-editor dialog does not show a separate attribute for setting the format of the date separately from the time format. Where is the format string for the date portion of the current date and time value ?

Hardware :: Keyboard Failure And Updating BIOS?

May 12, 2010

I am using a Dell dimension 4550 with pentium 4 processor. My current BOIS is A01. I am running Slackware 13. My current problem is that whenever I reboot, the keyboard fails just before the kernel selection page. This isn't a huge problem because I only have one kernel to boot but it is quite annoying. Whenever I shutdown the computer and boot it up again the keyboard works fine. The problem only occurs when I reboot.How do I fix this? Would updating the BIOS solve the problem?

General :: Make App Detect When System Time Has Changed?

Jun 9, 2011

I need to write a small application which needs to detect if the system time is changed by an another application/user and perform some action as soon as it is detected (maybe log the data that time has changed, along with info about which application/user changed it).

How can this be achieved?

I have good programming experiences in shell script, c and beginner level in python.
I don't need to know when it was changed, just need to know who/what changed it.
The system uses NTP to sync the time, but it is also possible for anyone/any application to change the time(for eg: using the simple "date" command as well).

Fedora :: Cannot Set Time Of Clock

Jul 29, 2009

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?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Clock Applet Shows Time One Second Behind?

Apr 17, 2011

I recently noticed that the time displayed in the Gnome Clock applet is exactly (or nearly so) one second behind NTP time.I have a NTP server on my small network to which I sync my other PCs. Some of the applications I run are critical of time and need sub second accuracy - I am also a bit of Time Nut as well.My NTP server is OK. My PCs can sync to my NTP server OK. My applications which require precise time get the right time from NTP - BUT - the time displayed in the GNOME Clock applet is always behind one second!I have spent much time searching for others with similar problems and their solutions but so far nothing - hence my asking here, why do I see this behaviour and what can I do about it

Ubuntu :: Won't Gnome Panel Clock Show Local Time / Why Is So?

Sep 30, 2010

When I travel, I would like to tell my laptop that I, as a user, am in a different time zone that what the OS may think is local. And I would like the clock on my desktop (default Gnome bar date/time display) to show the local time.

Instead, I currently have to use sudo and change the system time... (click on the clock, choose time settings, set system time -- there are no other choices given). The applet thing allows me to add other locations, but they only show up if I click on the icon, as extra times below the main one.

Am I missing something? Using the wrong app?

Programming :: Using Clock For Calculating CPU And WALL Time?

Oct 17, 2008

I have been using clock() for calculating CPU time and time() for calculating Wall time. However, since time() does not provided milli / microsecond accurancy, I started using gettimeofday() as below to calculate wall time,

struct timeval tv1,tv2;
struct timezone tz1, tz2;
gettimeofday(&tv1,&tz1);
double time_start1 = (double) tv1.tv_sec + (double)tv1.tv_usec/
1000000.0;
//ALL ALGO PROCESSING HERE
gettimeofday(&tv2,&tz2);
double time_stop1 = (double) tv2.tv_sec + (double)tv2.tv_usec/
1000000.0;
LOGGER.info("BackgroundEstimationAlgoT Run WALL_TIME: %0.3f",(double)
(time_stop1 - time_start1));

Certain times, I have been noticing that WALLTIME calculated is lesser than CPUTIME. I am not sure why ? Double checked the simple code, nothing seems to be wrong in simple subtraction. My understanding was always WALLTIME (elapsed time) remains higher than CPUTIME (compute
time). I run my application on head node of a Linux cluster comprising of 24 compute nodes, each with 8 processors.

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.
