Thread: Time problem

    Time problem

    I installed knoppix 7.2 on a USB and everything workds great...except it gives the wrong time. This would only be an annoyance except I need to have the correct timestamp on my files. I use multiple computers and OS's for my work and it is beneficial to know which of several is the most recent version of a file.

    I've tried using the following:

    dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

    Current default time zone: 'America/Regina'
    Local time is now: Wed Aug 13 10:40:20 CST 2014.
    Universal Time is now: Wed Aug 13 16:40:20 UTC 2014.

    Unfortunately the local time was 16:40. My actual time zone is CST so UTC-6 is correct. It seems to be acquiring the wrong UTC time.

    I then used a time server (20 minutes later)

    ntpdate -q nist1-nj2.ustiming.org
    server 165.193.126.229, stratum 1, offset 21599.700910, delay 0.09451
    13 Aug 11:00:51 ntpdate[4395]: step time server 165.193.126.229 offset 21599.700910 sec

    BTW, as I said, I'm running knoppix on a USB. When running Fedora 20 on my harddrive there are no such problems so I do not think it is a hardware problem.

    Thanks for any help someone might give.

    You can use the cheatcode "tz=America/Regina". Take care of hint 9!

    Have also a look at Micro-Remastering at this website.

    The problem is that it does not set the UTC time correctly so setting "tz=America/Regina" gives me a local time for somewhere in the middle of the Pacific ocean. It so happens it sets the UTC time equal to what my local time actually happens to be. So my workaround is to set my local time=UTC. Then I get the correct local time. Weird!

    Did you read hint 9? You must set the hardware clock within BIOS to UTC manually by yourself.

    I get time set via ntpdate-debian. /etc/default/ntpdate edit the line NTPSERVERS="your ntp server" Verify the ntpdate file exist in /etc/network/if-up.d Now each time your nic becomes active or up. Your time will sync. I use pool.ntp.org for correct time.
