System Time keeps going back to Moscow
Hiya all

Been happening since I installed Knoppix, nows its really getting to me!

My system time keeps defaulting to Moscow. I right click>Adjust Date and Time, change it all to GMT etc etc, but next time I log on it is back to Moscow. All good if I lived in Moscow but...

You need to adjust the system time settings as root to make the changes system wide.

But it asked me for the root I thought I was 'Acrting Root' whilst that window was open...

Am I not right in thinking that?

If I remember my knoppix correctly you need to type 'su' first to enter root mode. There may be a gui app similar to drakconf that runs as root and allows you to change the system time amongst other things.

Well I logged in as root, changed the time but when I log back in as Me it still goes back to Moscow.

Any ideas?

Try running tzconfig as root.

Just tried it, still no go. tzconfig as root and as Me says the timezone is Europe/London, which is correct but it still displays Moscow.

Am I the only one with this problem?

I think i have solved it.

I simply right clicked on the clock>Show Timezones>Local Timezone.

I reconfigured the correct time and logged off, logged back on and it is still correct.

Fingers crossed!!

Thanks to all those that helped


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:11 PM.
