Eastern day time in north america

Post#1 by francois » 13 Mar 2016, 14:39

Eastern day time changes in north eastern america. Days will provide longer sunshine. Alas the clock of the panel is wrong or with local time or with UTC New-York, respectively 5:38 and 9:38.

What about you others north eastern americans?

How do you set it right?

1 - set your location cheatcode (timezone)
2 - sync clock with ntp

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# ntpdate 0.us.pool.ntp.org
3 - Set the hardware clock from the current system time

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# hwclock -w

@SlaxMan

Your answer helped me fix a computer which had the wrong time. I checked with time.gov in Central Standard Time. Great answer! I had checked other sites, but I had to stop ntpd service and run your ntpdate command and it worked :) I will use it to sync my other machines as well.

This is the panacea. My computer just resumed the good time. :D
Thanks slaxmax.

Nobody uses GUIs, everything is done via the command line. Just like USM. :D

On another linux box, slaxmax procedure is so simple to apply.
Thanks once more. :)

To set timezone:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Time#Set_clock

To check the current zone defined for the system:

Code: Select all

$ timedatectl
To list available zones:

Code: Select all

$ timedatectl list-timezones
To change your time zone:

Code: Select all

# timedatectl set-timezone Zone/SubZone 
If you are having issues with the offset of the time, try reinstalling tzdata and then setting yourtime zone again:

Code: Select all

# timedatectl set-timezone America/Los_Angeles
[/s]

This is for systemd. :(

I think timedatectl is used in systemd based Linux systems.

In other words not Porteus? Or maybe only for Nemesis?

BTW & FYI

Worked on a neighbor's pc today. Had to change his BIOS to support booting from my USB drive. Found his pc's system clock set to local time!! What a surprise. :lol:
