Time setting back 5 hours
Sorry to make a new thread while I have a question out still but:
I boot into KDE and set the time to the correct time, but when I reboot the time is set by 5 hours, no matter what I set the time to!

go into your BIOS and see if the time that is incorrect is the time that is set in the BIOS.... if so correct it in there ...

Hmmm... BIOS is correct!

However, I *think* I might know the reason it is doing this, earlier. I issued the command "date -u" which must've set something about UTC time, and seeing as my time is being set back 5 hours, and I am 5 hours offset of UTC, this is a very interesting correlation.

so what your saying is that you don't have your time set to your hardware clock ?
anyways check this link as i think you will be able to come to a resolvement with this info ..

Thanks. That link gave all the info I needed, turns out that BIOS stores UTC, didnt know that, and I was setting it at EST, now only if I someone as helpful as you would answer the other question I had and id be all set!

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 01:09 AM.
