I have a debian & windows dual boot system, everything seems to be fine except the system date in both os. Each time I logout from one os and boot into another, the system date jump several hour forward.
For example, if the system date is 12:00 when I logout from Windows, it will become, say, 22:00 after I boot into Debian.
My timezone setting is the same in windows and debian, is there a way to synchronize the system date in both os?
The hw clock is assumed to be in UTC since it cannot store the offset. Windows has not concept of this, it sets the hw clock to local time. To work around this issue, make sure that the hw clock is set to local time and change UTC=yes to UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS
That same time problem started for me when I upgraded Sarge to Etch with 2.6.12 kernel. It was very frustrating because no offered solution worked. Neither Kanotix nor Mepis nor Sarge ever had problem. Then after several weeks my upgrading kernel to 2.6.14 and system to Etch/Sid resolved time errors. Cheers.
