This is probably a really stupid question, but how do you set the system date and time on Linux. I've tried:
clock --set --date="14/01/2002 08:24:00"
hwclock --set --date="14/01/2002 08:24:00"
both as root and whilst the commands executed without reporting an error, they don't appear to have done anything. If I use clock and hwclock without arguments they both report:
Sat Feb 1 08:29:39 2003 -0.673500 seconds
and date reports
Sun Oct 6 09:31:35 BST 2002
If anybody could help it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
