Yet another question; TimeZone related


Oh man, I feel like an idiot! This is like the 3rd question tonight...

Ok, I was configuring my timezone and was reading the Time Hints Hint. I try to type in the bash script but always at the end it gives me:

bash: /etc/init.d/setclock: No such file or directory

And returns me to my bash prompt.

If this is NO BIG DEAL, then I won't worry about and move on, but if it is, can anyone tell me what to do? I will include the entire compile script at the end of this so you can see if maybe it was written wrong or something. Or if you want to see the whole HINT then you can click the link above. Thanks!

#################################################
cat >/etc/init.d/setclock <<EOF
#!/bin/sh
# Begin /etc/init.d/setclock

#
# Include the functions declared in the /etc/init.d/functions file
# and include the variables from the /etc/sysconfig/clock file
#

source /etc/init.d/functions
source /etc/sysconfig/clock

case "$1" in
start)
case "$UTC" in
yes|true|1)
/sbin/hwclock --hctosys --utc
;;
no|false|0)
/sbin/hwclock --hctosys --localtime
;;
*)
echo "Invalid value for UTC in /etc/sysconfig/clock: $UTC"
echo "Valid values for UTC are 1 and 0."
exit 1
;;
esac
;;
stop)
case "$UTC" in
yes|true|1)
/sbin/hwclock --systohc --utc
;;
no|false|0)
/sbin/hwclock --systohc --localtime
;;
*)
echo "Invalid value for UTC in /etc/sysconfig/clock: $UTC"
echo "Valid values for UTC are 1 and 0."
exit 1
;;
esac
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
exit 1
;;
esac

# End /etc/init.d/setclock
EOF

#######################################################

That's it

Check to make sure "/bin/sh" exists and is executable.

Strange... It's sort of acting like root can't edit anything. I wonder if when I went back and added group root it changed stuff??

What is the error when you try to open an editor? I guess which editor might also help

What do you mean "added group root"? Wasn't there already a "root/0" group when you installed Linux? I'm not extremely familiar with Mandrake (if that's what you're using), but I would assume they'd add the same default groups as others do.

I was pretty vague wasn't I? I was getting "/etc/init.d/setclock: no such file or directory" Or something very close to that. I found that I didn't have my 'root:x:0' set. I was thinking I will have to go back and re-install all of my software because of that. But it is working, so I guess it's ok. Well, it's not actually working, but it finished everything fine, now I just need to figure out how to boot into it... (see other post)

/etc/init.d/clock doesn't exist. This hint was written a long time ago and since that day, the bootscripts have changed in their naming structure. The file you're looking for is /etc/rc.d/init.d/setclock

Maybe Marc Heerdink needs a little nudge to update the hint. If needed I could update it or get in contact with Marc to get his permission to do it.
