Ubuntu :: System Clock Automatically Advances 6 Hours

Jan 20, 2010


I've been frustrated with several problems I've been experiencing with Karmic Koala. The one I'll mention in this post is the fact that it randomly decides to adjust the system clock ahead 6 hours. I believe this began happening when I set the location for the system time that displays in the top panel. I'm guessing that the 6 hours is the fact that I'm in the US Central Time zone.

CentOS 5 ::Why Clock Went Backwards By 19 Hours And 30 Minutes

Jun 2, 2010

I am running a LAMP system with CentOS 5.4.The clock just automatically shifted backwards by 19 hours and 30 minutes crippling some of my reports and probably damaging something else along the way.The router supplying IP to this server is a DD-WRT and shows proper time.By the way what does that mean? time drifted by that 33.667 ms?

Ubuntu Installation :: Clock Is Set Ahead By Five Hours When Boot Into Windows 7

Jul 17, 2010

My computer has two physical hard drives. Up till now, the first hard drive was for Windows XP and Windows 7, the second was used for file storage. I just installed Lucid Lynx on the second drive. The two problems are as follows.

<s>1. When I boot into Windows 7, the clock is set ahead by five hours, even as the time zone remains the same. </s> Terribly sorry. Found the answer in another thread. Should have searched.

2. I have kept the Windows 7 boot loader (choice of 7 or XP) on the first hard drive, and put Ubuntu and grub on the second hard drive. That way, if I want to load Ubuntu, I press F9 for the hp boot menu and select the second hard drive. From there, I would like this to boot straight into Ubuntu. How do I keep the grub boot menu from appearing? Should I just edit grub.cfg, so it has a timeout value of 0?

Fedora :: Having Es_ES Language And 12 Hours Format On Clock?

May 23, 2011

I noticed that the language es_ES (Spanish Spain), has a problem, you can't put the clock in 12 hours format, I was googling for a while and found that it should edit the file



Find these lines


am_pm "";""
t_fmt_ampm ""

and replace with


am_pm "<U0041><U004D>";"<U0050><U004D>"
t_fmt_ampm "<U0025><U0049><U003A><U0025><U004D><U003A><U0025><U0053>/

But I did it and still don't show me the option to change the clock to 12 hour format, I tried changing the es_NI language (Spanish Nicaragua) and gives me the option of 12 hours, but the languages ​​of programs like firefox, thunderbird, openoffice change to English.What can i do to have language es_ES and 12 hours format on my clock? or es_NI language with firefox, thunderbird etc. in spanish?

Software :: Clock Jumps Hours Ahead After Boot

Nov 14, 2010

When I shut down the machine everything is as it should be. Time set from the net, hwclock synced. When I boot again, time is set several hours into the future. This is an additive process, when I don't set the correct time it drifts with every boot even days into the future (until boot is denied, because files are too far in the future). I tried to get rid of that behaviour by doing:

sntp -P no -r pool.ntp.org
hwclock --systohc
I renamed /etc/adjtime which looked like this:

22292.201093 1289670517 0.000000

Now it looks as follows:
0.000000 1289733620 0.000000

To no avail. What could cause that and how can I correct it?

Fedora :: In Dual Boot, Clock Is Diff. By 4 Hours In Windows?

Jul 24, 2009

I have Fedora in dual boot with windows on a laptop. I have a weird clock problem. If I get the clock set correctly in Fedora, then it's 4 hours too fast in Windows. When I fix it in Windows and then restart into Fedora, it's 4 hours too slow in Fedora!Why are they competing with each other and how do I get them to both be correct?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clock Messed Up 2 Hours Early Or Forward - Idk

Jun 14, 2010

i probably messed up the clock somehow... I think during install. Linux keeps messing up windows clock... And vice versa... When the clock in windows is correct (say, 2 PM), the clock in Linux when i reboot says 4 PM... And when i set up the clock in Linux to the correct time (in this case 2 PM) and boot into windows, windows clock says 12 PM...

Of course, when i correct it in windows, linux clock gets messed up again... 2 hours early or forward, idk... I'm not sure what i did to make this happen... Maybe has something to do with hardware clock... I don't wanna constantly correct time whenever i change systems...

OpenSUSE :: Date And Time Automatically Adjusted 4 Hours Back

Jun 22, 2011

I have a switch tray on my computer and I installed opensuse in one of the hard drives that I have but as I switch between the windows hard drive and opensuse the time changes all the time. For example it's 10pm right now and if I switch the hard drive to opensuse the time automatically gets adjusted 4 hours back and then I fix it and when I switch back to my windows hard drive the time goes forward 4 hours. I check both region settings and they are both set to NY Eastern time. Why is it doing this?

General :: Gentoo System Keeps Crashing Every 6 Hours?

Jul 12, 2010

I was installing "wine" last night and since I knew it was going to take a while I closed the lid of the laptop and turned it upside down on the floor. (I always turn the laptop upside down when not using it otherwise might overheat)When I woke up this morning roughly 8 hours after I went to sleep the machine was turned off.Using the "last -x | grep shutdown | head -1" it stated that it went down at roughly 6 hours from when I went to sleep.The program I was installing got finished installing but I never set up an auto-shutdown program or anything of the sort.If this isn't a problem with linux then its a problem with my bios. If its a problem with my bios I will just have to live with it because my bios is locked. /var/log/messages says this:

alexslaptop logger: ACPI event unhandled: battery BAT1 00000080 00000001
alexslaptop shutdown[14933]: shutting down for system halt

Ubuntu :: Multiple OSs And The System Clock?

Aug 4, 2010

I triple boot with XP on the first partition, sidux on the second and third and Ubuntu on the fourth. sidux controls grub2. When I boot into XP or Ubuntu, my clock gets set ahead 4 hours to UTC time (I'm on Eastern daylight time).

Is there a way for all three OSs to display the right time?

OpenSUSE :: Clock Time If Off Despite Using "set Automatically"

Feb 23, 2011

I have my clock set to use "Public Time Server (pool.ntp.org)" but it's actually off by 10 minutes (and I think it's getting off by more and more each day).I had previously had it set manually, but it was getting off by more and more every day, so I thought using automatic time set would fix the issue.

Ubuntu :: Big Difference In System And Hardware Clock

Jun 23, 2010

Wrong system clock; Right hardware clock. 'date' and 'hwclock --show' show big differences in time. Hardware clock keeps the correct time, but 'date', the system clock, doesn't (often wrong in a matter of hours). So I'm sure it is the problem of the kernel. I'm tired of synching hardware clock with the system clock all the time. How do I get Ubuntu to use the hardware clock instead of its own in the first place?

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.

Ubuntu :: Clock Wrong On Dual Boot System?

Apr 20, 2011

I've set-up dual boot on my laptop. Ubuntu installed first, then Windows 7 so it uses Grub2 to control the booting on start-up. I've noticed that my system clock goes out by an hour on both OS's, I change the clock to correct time & on reboot the time is usually (not always straight away) an hour behind. Has anyone else had this problem & know how to fix it?

General :: Set Windows To Use System Clock As UTC?

Jan 28, 2011

While dual-booting Windows and Linux, Linux sets the system time to UTC, so Windows thinks it's midnight near mid-morning. Is there any other way to tell Windows to use UTC? I've seen the registry tweak proposed here and other places. This does not work on my computer (Windows 7 32-bit).For reference, the registry entry is this:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTimeZoneInformation]"RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001

Ubuntu :: System Clock Suddenly Losing 1min Per Hour?

Jun 1, 2010

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[9734]: 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?

General :: System Clock Keeps Drifting Forward?

Sep 8, 2010

the time on system clock given with 'date' command keeps moving forward about 1 minute for every hour of realtime. The box is up all the time so this is not an issue with motherboard battery. An equivalent box with the same hardwre/OS and applications doesn't have the same level of drift. I'm not sure what else this could be.Both boxes are Centos 5.2 64-bit.
