[plug] System Clock

Eight hours behind or forward?

If it's 8 hours behind, it is most likely a GMT issue..(covered by others)
If it's 8 hours forward, RedHat has had some dodgy timezone files

eg (My RedHat7.0):
wrong - /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Perth
not recc -/usr/share/zoneinfo/posix/Australia/Perth
right - /usr/share/zoneinfo/right/Australia/Perth

Run "locate Perth" to check if you have multiples, and then
"ls -altF /etc/localtime" to check what's pointed where.
Execute "ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/right/Australia/Perth /etc/localtime"
to fix...

Hi all

I am a fairly new Linux user as far as administration of my
own system goes.

Every time I turn my computer on the clock is out by 8 hours.
I have attempted to use hwclock to fix the problem, but, it would
appear that the information is being written to the BIOS from a file
and I do not know where to go in search of this :(

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
