timestamp in the future


Just installed debian sarge with the netinstall on a old pIII(450) and got everything working except I don't know how to fix these errors when I install stuff with apt;
tar: ./md5sums: time stamp 2004-04-03 07:28:05 is 24535403 s in the future
tar: ./control [almost same as above]
tar: .: [almost same as above]
thanks,how can I fix this?

Wow this is an old post of mine Why don't you want to correct the time?
as root
su
date
lets say you want to change the date to Jan 21 5:35pm 2009
date 012117352009

also if your box has a hard time keeping time you can use ntp-client

tar warns if the files you are extracting have modification time that are in the future (relative to the machine where tar is currently running, of course).

If you don't care about preserving the modification time of the extracted files. You can use the '-m' or '--touch' option of tar. tar will no longer warn because it will set the modification time to the current time touching the extracted files.

there is logical reason not to change hwclock

i just tried to copy a tar across the globe, from a windows machine to a unix server, and got this error message.
the clocks are just fine on both ends.
maybe i could create the tar using GMT time, i don't know.
but the solution was to skip date matching, and not to change clocks.

not working -
tar xzvf fname.tar.gz

working (extra "m") -
tar xmzvf fname.tar.gz
