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.
