Warning: modification time 1.3e+08 s in the future.


Hi I'm trying to install DirectFB onto a Davinci Board from TI. When I run 'make' I get a load of warnings that certain files have a modification time in the future. Is this something to worry about?
e.g.
make[1]: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 1.3e+08 s in the future.

Thanks

harry

Clock skew detected

Also I'm getting warnings like:
"warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete."

I assume this is linked.

What does this mean??

Thanks

It just sounds like your time is wrong on the machine. What does the 'date' command say the time is. When you extracted the source, it probably kept the old timestamps, which the machine believes is in the future. It probably won't hurt much, but you may as well fix it. You can use the date command to set the correct time. use ' date -s "08/06/2008 15:30" ' as root.

Warning persists even after changing the date

Hi I am getting the same warning when trying to install the build system for the NetSurf web browser, but my date is set correctly!!!

The only difference is I am installing NetSurf on a virtual box build. Should this be a problem ?

What should I do ?
