how to change and view time settings?


i was trying to install mysql

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --without-server --enable-shared=yes --with-readline
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock

got this above error.

how can I check my timeand date settings and correct it?

Thank you
