"Solved" Clock 6 hours advanced switching back to win-7 :(

Post by ThrashZone » Fri Feb 27, 2015 11:53 pm

Hi everyone just tweaking mint mate 17.1 a bit and this is my first look at Linux so be kind,
I also put the 32 bit version on a little laptop along side windows 7
Very interesting issue with Appearance/ Customize/ Window border/ eOS
It looks great but is there known issues with using it ?

Seems soon after switching to it I lost the update shield :/
I did change the icon for fully updated to something else but I have to open update utility by start page ?
Then two will appear and soon disappear neither will have the icon ai switched too.

On another note on a 64 bit system on a solo install of 17.1 on a ssd the clock is correct but when I exit or shut down and switch out ssd'd to win-7 64 bit my windows clock is 6hours advanced lol it's not a huge deal but very annoying,
Somewhere allong the line the time is getting freaked out in I suppose the bios by mint ?
I change it by simply syncing with internet time but it's getting a bit old,
There was a very old solution but does not work now,

Is there a new fix for the clock issue ?
Cheers and thanks in advance.

Re: Window border eOS bad or what ?

I forgot to post system spec's which can be seen here in it's entirety
http://www.sevenforums.com/members/thrashzone.html
I downloaded mint mate 17.1 from James Madison university

I already got rid of the laptops version of mm17.1
I changed colors first then switched to the eOS dooda and that's what killed it I suspect I found out on the 64 bit version that eOS does not allow or support different color changes bummer I like that one :(

But the clock issue persists and now windows will not auto sync with internet time I have to adjust the clock manually :(
Very weird stuff I wish there is a solution too in detail so a caveman can understand :)
64 bit is allot faster than the slow x86 version could be equipment laptop is low powered,
Might try again using VMware allot easier to get rid of no doubt :?
Cheers.

Just re-sync your clock

Code: Select all

sudo ntpdate time.apple.com

Hi thanks,
Linux shows correct although every time I'm coming out of win-7 where the time has already been corrected,
I'm in Texas I forgot to say that too :/
I haven't a clue where this 6 hours advance is coming from exiting out of Linux
7 only reads the boot and I guess mother board,
And I would guess Linux would do the same thing on startup and not change anything on shut down nor would win-7.

The dual boot or really along side install on my laptop didn't have a clock issue x86,
Just to clarify,
I have two ssd's each os installed on
I have a hot swap case but only one side is ever hot at the same time my mother board only has one connection
I swap the ssd's after full shutdown.
Cheers.

Hello, ThrashZone.

The file /etc/default/rcS holds a line which should say "no" on dual boot systems with Windows:

Code: Select all

# assume that the BIOS clock is set to UTC time (recommended)
UTC=no
UTC=no will make Windows and Linux agree that the hardware clock has to be set to local time too and that it returns local time, not UTC.

Cheers,
Karl

ThrashZone,

You have to open the file /etc/default/rcS and change the line UTC=yes to UTC=no

This should open the file from the terminal and allow you to edit the contents.

Code: Select all

for e in kate gedit pluma;do if test -e /usr/bin/$e;then sudo $e /etc/default/rcS;fi;done
The change will take effect upon restart.

Good luck :wink:

Thank you so much WharfRat that worked like a charm :)
Not sure how that string was created but darn I'm officially impressed :D
Can't thank you guy enough love the 64 bit version so far pretty fast with just a few stalls at times,
It will take a while to get used to and I'm still testing win-10tp "I know bite my tongue"
It's pretty pitiful which is why I started looking at mint 17.1 ;)

Anyway thanks you guys again very much appreciated in the words of the terminator "I'll be back" :lol:
Cheers from Houston Texas :party:

Hello, ThrashZone.

Once you'll be back, it would be nice if you marked your thread as "solved". :-)
This can be done only manually in this forum, no status button available.
Go to your first post in this thread. Click on the [Edit] button and prefix or suffix the word "solved" to the title.

Cheers,
Karl
