_Iwonder_i never figured out why the timezone setting won't stick,but kde reflects correct time and i don't have emerge timestamp problems
[sellout]The processor in question is an amd Semperon 2800+ with the following flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 syscall nx mmxext fxsr_opt lm 3dnowext 3dnow lahf_lm
bssteph_Iwonder_: you don't have TIMEZONE set in /etc/conf.d/clock ? unless this is an old problem
nn-knoppixjames541, you here
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ /etc/localtime?
richiefrich[sellout]: whats the 1st few lines say
[sellout]: model name : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
[sellout]: ?
_Iwonder_clock=local
james541yup
didn't forget about you
_Iwonder_etc/localtime isn't human readable
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/<whatever> /etc/localtime
oops wrong directory :)
bsstepha better way would be to set the proper TIMEZONE in /etc/conf.d/clock like i said, but whatever
grknightbut for now i might sign out
richiefrichbssteph: ooj
Triffid_Hunterdotdotdot: I usually symlink.. that way you don't need to copy again if the info gets updated
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ nvm its right.. lol
richiefrichbssteph: so like what TIMEZONE="EST"
?
Staticwave_Acedoes anyone know where I can find an unoffical installcd with a kernel > 2.6.17?
defaceeh?
_Iwonder_what is the relevance of the timezone setting?
defacewhy unofficial?
bsstephrichiefrich: TIMEZONE="EST5EDT". whatever file you would normally copy over, use that. then every time timezone-data is emerged, it will copy the file for you
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ if you use ntp
_Iwonder_ it will sync to the correct server
richiefrichbssteph: ahh ok
_Iwonder_i don't
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ thus ensuring correct time at all times, with the ntpd
strong007hello, how can i mount a lvm partiotioned hard disk? any url?
dotdotdot_Iwonder_ ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/<whatever> /etc/localtime && emerge ntp && rc-update add ntp-client default && rc-update add ntpd default && /etc/init.d/ntp-client start && /etc/init.d/ntpd start
_Iwonder_well i can see where timestamps may become a problem if time were to become wrong
Triffid_Hunter_Iwonder_: most times/dates are stored as GMT/UTC, with equivalent localtime calculated at display time. if your timezone is wrong, your system will have an incorrect idea of GMT/UTC even if localtime appears to be correct
richiefrichbssteph: thats why i get that error on boot .. or message
bsstephrichiefrich: it's the new right way to do things, not all this copying/symlinking manually nonsense
richiefrichbssteph: i didnt ever see that in that file to set .. so thanks
bsstephrichiefrich: it's newish, i missed it at first too
_Iwonder_i'd prefer not to run nptd
