Question how to set system clock on Vector 5.9 Xfce


Ok, stupid question- How the heck do I adjust the system clock on Vector 5.9 running Xfce?

On SuSE, I can just right click on the clock, and just set it.
I need to set it because my build environment is "insane" or something...

You can directly set the system date/time from a terminal using the 'date' command.
See http://unixhelp.ed.ac.uk/CGI/man-cgi?date
