clock settings

the clock settings on my system with slackware 9.1 are wrong and when I try to set the clock by clicking on the clock and left clicking and than going to adjust date and time I get the crash handler,and it says"The application KDE Control module {kcmshell} crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV}. I saved the bug report but have no idea how to send it and also how how do I correct the problem

Try setting your time in Bios. If you get hour shift (different in Bios than in slack), just put wrong in bios, but to have correct in OS. I know it's shitty thing, but I think there is nothing else we can do. I had the same problem in 9.1. Now I'm using slack 10.0 with kde 3.2.3 and everything's a.ok. Dunno what's up

This just goes to show that using KDE keeps you from learning to use Linux.

Open up a terminal and try this:
man date

man hwclock
There are other commands for setting your clock (in the OS and in BIOS) automatically from internet time servers, but first check out these two commands.

That's bug.
You can set (syncronize) your clock with "ntpd -q" command while you're on Internet.
