Clock problem
 
Thers is a Mandrake Linux 10.0 and WinXP installed in my HD. When I turned my clock right in Linux, I found that the clock time was wrong when I booted to WinXP next time . The same thing happened when I set the time in WinXP right, the time in Linux was wrong when I booted to WinXP next time.

What's wrong ?:confused:

Sounds like you've set the clock to change the hardware clock and have used UTC. That happened to me once. Make sure you have the right setting for Daylight Saving Time.

i'm guessing you told linux your system clock used GMT time, and now your time difference
between the OSes is equal to the GMT offset?

--where exactly is HK, i can't make an example of the offset b/c i don't know where you are.

Are you configured for the correct timezones?

So, can you tell me what exactly the steps to correct the problem ?
Thank you !


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 03:45 AM.
