I'm not having much luck getting Mint 9 to show the time right. I've tried using the Time/Date from the menu, and have downloaded the program to sync with time servers, but still show the wrong time.
And is there a way to change the root name and password? I know it's an odd request, but I was planing on getting rid of this computer, and installed Mint thinking that whoever got it would want to change it when they got it. After playing with it, I've decided to keep it! It has an Intel motherboard that until now, hasn't worked well with the newer kernels. But thanks to Mint, it works too good to get rid of!
