The time attribute of newfiles on remote machine


As a user of a cluster, I want to run my programs on the remote machine. But when I configured the files, an error occured:

[****@***** xmd-2.5.34-1]$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!Check your system clock
[****@***** xmd-2.5.34-1]$ date
Thu May 29 10:17:43 CST 2008

Then I mkdir a newdireciton and touch a newfile, the verbose as follows:

[****@***** morgen]$ mkdir newdir
[****@***** morgen]$ touch newfile
[****@***** morgen]$ ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 sxy1 com1 4096 Apr 14 2002 newdir
-rw-r--r-- 1 sxy1 com1 0 Apr 14 2002 newfile
[****@***** morgen]$ date
Thu May 29 10:23:25 CST 2008
[****@***** morgen]$

My question is, why the new created files precede the present system time, how can I deal with this?

Welcome to LQ!

My best guess without any other details would be that the local system time (probably set in your bios) is not accurate. You need to check it, and then make sure the current time is reflected in your machine when you reboot.
