I have a problem: everytime I boot my PC, the time is set back 4 hours relative to the time that was set on the last boot. ie, if the clock says 14:00 now, and I reboot, the clock will say 10:00. This all started when I followed the instructions here
to set my clock to the right time (it was 10 minutes slow before, but at least none of this magic time-changing happened). So what I want to know is how to fix this so the clock will be normal again.
Here's some output that might
hernan@hernan:~ (23.740 MB)$ date
Sat Apr 2 01:55:59 CLT 2005
hernan@hernan:~ (23.740 MB)$ /sbin/hwclock
Sat 02 Apr 2005 05:56:11 AM CLT -0.178997 seconds
(as you can see, the kernel clock and the hw clock differ).
It probably has something to do with my timezone (CLT: -4 hrs) but I have no idea on how to go about fixing this.
The basic instructions I followed to set the clock were:
* /etc/sysconfig/clock sets whether the hardware clock is stored as UTC or local time.
* Symlink /etc/localtime to /usr/share/zoneinfo/... to set your timezone.
* Run ``date MMDDhhmm'' to set the current system date/time.
* Type ``/sbin/hwclock --systohc [--utc]'' to set the hardware clock.
Thanks for your help,
