been having some trouble with time on a dualboot debian laptop. i tried
then edit /etc/rcS and set UTC=yes
but it didn’t work. the answer was just to do
i also found my previous notes on this problem, which were
so the machine was refusing to change the time using
then i tried
hwclock –systohw –directisa
and it succeded, dont know if it will survive a reboot though.
then i tried hwclock –systohw –directisa –localtime
and it survived!!!! i dont know. also i added a parameter to the rcS init
file for –directisa
but i don’t remember anything about directisa or rcS init or why i would do that.
