System Clock UTC Whatever..


Hi all,

I have a strange problem which is when I set my clock by
Code:
date -s 10:25
it changes to 10:25, but when I boot winxp after linux, the clock in windows goes to 3 hours earlier time.. When I set winxp clock, linux clock goes to 3 hours later time...

I think the problem is with setting clock to hardware clock but I don't know how to solve this...

Thanks a lot...

Hi,

the is a tool called "WEBMIN" . You can download the package at www.webmin.com. With this tool you can access your machine with the webbrowser. Among other things you can set the system time to the hardware time. I hope its helpful.
