My system time for root is correct, but for my normal user account it is wrong. The time in the BIOS is correct as well. I ran timeconfig as root and set the hardware clock to localtime and then set the correct timezone. Again as root the time is correct
, when I run date as root I get this:
Fri Jul 21 16:26:16 EDT 2006
But when I run date as my normal user account I get this:
Fri Jul 21 20:26:58 UTC 2006
I did notice that when I run as root and type "date" it says "EDT" next to the time (which is correct) but as a normal user it says "UTC". How do I change the time for my normal user so it's the same time as it is for root?
As root I can change the time with date -s xx:xx but when I try as a normal user I get "operation not permitted". I understand I am probably getting this error becuase I am trying to change the global system time as a normal user.. so how do I go about setting the correct time for my normal user account? It seems like there should be some kind of a command I can enter as root that will change the time for all users.
