Time zone sets inappropriate time during Ubuntu 9.04 installation
While installing Jaunty Jackalope, the Time Zone selector gave a time which was whopping five hours ahead of my Bangladesh Standard Time. It was around 01:30am when I was installing Ubuntu and the time it set was beyond 06am! I don't know why it happened, but I can recall it happened earlier too on several occasions. I always had to reset the time manually later.
And this even changed my system time as well as the time set in Vista.
Is this a hardware problem? Or is there something to do with the Ubuntu installer?
Does anyone have any idea, please!
Bangladesh is GMT+6 and now we are having DST set at GMT+7. Could that be a factor for the anomaly?
However, I surely couldn't configure boot options correctly for dual booting with Vista (the error did not take place while installing Vista) and my Ubuntu is not booting :(, but that's ANOTHER problem. Right now I'm searching for a good tutorial for Vista-Ubuntu dual booting.
