my clock is UTC???

While my BIOS clock and Windows clock seems to tell the right time, my linux clock, which I have set to sync via NTP is giving me Greenwich time, 7 hours ahead...I don't know how to fix!!!

See if you have the command "/usr/sbin/timeconfig". I'm not sure if this command is specific to slackware.

i think in /etc/sysconfig/clock you should have:

here's mine:

# Begin /etc/sysconfig/clock


# End /etc/sysconfig/clock

check out this page for some help
