I'm sorry,i rechecked BIOS Time and other OSs Clock aplt are working great.But ONLY FC4 clock is stopped everytime i shutdown the system,another idiotic thing i did was i adjusted time in FC4 and that changed BIOS time and hence other OSs time also.I think some thing is interferring with the clock applet!For u r knowledge i got FC4 DVD from LiFY which fails to boot in my machine due to some bug.so i tried twice to boot and SECOND time only FC4 DVD booted.These Problems may be peculiar to intel 915 machines?!

Thumbs down

As a last resort,I removed all local packages installed (23+) and adjusted time and shutdown -h now.during next boot up FC4 clock is working fine.But am not able to sort which rpm was causing the conflict for clock to work proper?!

Godsend (don't have a clue about the OP question) - Matir kindly helped me fix my clock problem by soft linking the /usr/share/zoneinfo/? to /etc/localtime

the command is (as root or with sudo)

ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST /etc/localtime

This should link the EST time setting to the file that is read to gather the system time every boot
