Jwtear you didn't answer his question nor did you enter the right code. First you don't have the $ which indicates a variable I believe. I assume your username is Linux. If That's wrong too. What he actually wants to know is after you put in the correct code what is the output.

Exactly as minty33 says: copy and paste

Code:
date -u +%W$(uname)
into a terminal and press enter.

(though @minty33: 'uname' doesn't print your username, it prints the name of your kernel. Look at 'man uname' for more info)

@jwtear: As minty23 said,

We are interested in what the output of the command is, so we can have a better idea of what's going wrong. If you keep saying "it didn't work", we have no new information! Please run the command

Code:
date -u +%W$(uname)
exactly as it is written (copy and paste it) and then tell us what output it gives you.

Thanks,

The number before Linux should be the week number. Does it work if you change it to '01Linux' and use together with the rest of the command?

Just tried it myself - it does work if you try 01Linux. However, if I run the command given (date -u +%W$(uname)) I get '00Linux' like the OP did (and as the manpage suggests we should). I'll start a thread on the Arch forums mentioning the problem.

EDIT: yes, it's already been reported: though the admin feedback isn't great so far. Hooray for jeremy and the mods, I guess links are https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=155530 and https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic....13243#p1213243

When you did it with 01Linux did you remember to check daylight savings. I know it's mentioned first on the thread but want to make sure you didn't lose sight of that w/ the other issues going on.
