Bootlogd is disabled by default. You need to change "/etc/default/bootlogd" to:
Code:
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes

Put printouts you cut and paste inside of [ code ] ... [ /code ] blocks. Then there will be a vertical scroll bar, and spacing isn't lost. You can also be selective in what part you post.

The problem may have been that your clock is so far off to begin with, the delta needed to adjust the clock is too large.
Code:
Time: 19:09:20 Date: 12/28/08
Try adjusting the clock to the correct time and date in the bios. If you still have problems, could the small lithium battery be going dead? You might need to replace one after 3 years.

me thinks you are on to something, i recently changed the display on this laptop, in the disassembly i had to remove the cmos bat, my dyslexia probably caused me to set the time wrong on reassembly. will check it.

many thanks for everyones valuable time, and will let you know the results.

ok, i set the time in the bios, and the cmos bat is about 4 years old but still passes a load test, but i will change it anyway asap.

if the bat is weak then in the meantime it will take a few days to show up losing time. a new bat is about 3 weeks to receive.

Thanks again and i will update when new bat is here.

Hi,

To enable /var/log/boot
edit /etc/default/bootlogd
set
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=No
to
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes.

look at the file /var/log/boot, and find the errormassage you need, and post it here.
