Fedora time bug

Filed under
HowTos

The question of setting time comes up frequently. Setting the timezone and the system clock can be confusing, particularly if the machine is dual boot. Nowadays I don't see too many of those (a sign that Linux has grown up enough or just that it's cheap enough to run separate machines?), so the answer is usually simple: set the hardware clock to UTC, run ntpd and set your timezone correctly.

So when a local reseller called recently saying he couldn't get a Fedora Core 4 box to hold time upon reboot, I assumed he just didn't have things set right and referred him to the docs.

I was wrong.

Full Story.

  • Report from Debian SnowCamp: day 3
    Thanks to Valhalla and other members of LIFO, a bunch of fine Debian folks have convened in Laveno, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, for a nice weekend of relaxing and sprinting on various topics, a SnowCamp.
  • Report from SnowCamp #1
    As Nicolas already reported, a bunch of Debian folk gathered in the North of Italy for a long weekend of work and socialisation.
  • Debian Gitlab (salsa.debian.org) tricks
  • Debian/TeX Live 2017.20180225-1
    To my big surprise, the big rework didn’t create any havoc at all, not one bug report regarding the change. That is good. OTOH, I took some time off due to various surprising (and sometimes disturbing) things that have happened in the last month, so the next release took a bit longer than expected.
  • Ubuntu Software Will Soon Let You Install Beta, Bleeding Edge Snap Apps
    No, not TV channels, or the sort the that ferries goods between countries, but development channels, e.g, beta, bleeding edge, stable, etc. Snap developers are able to distribute different versions of their app over “channels”, and have for almost as long as Snappy has been around in fact.
