Windows 10: time wrong, while time zone is correct.
I tried that fix in LM18 MATE about a month ago.
I didn't mention it, as (on my PC) it worked the first time (test run) but it hasn't worked since.
I haven't checked to see if something creates a new version of that "rcS" file at every boot/login.
It is a factor of two evils. This is where the other file is that affects clock settings.
2.4 How Linux keeps Track of Time Zones
You probably set your time zone correctly when you installed Linux. But if you have to change it for some reason, or if the local laws regarding DST have changed (as they do frequently in some countries), then you'll need to know how to change it. If your system time is off by some exact number of hours, you may have a time zone problem (or a DST problem).
Time zone and DST information is stored in /usr/share/zoneinfo (or /usr/lib/zoneinfo on older systems). The local time zone is determined by a symbolic link from /etc/localtime to one of these files. The way to change your timezone is to change the link. If your local DST dates have changed, you'll have to edit the file.
The Archwiki has saved my rear a few times when working with Linux. I always use Webmin on those machines that are servers. I used to swap between Linux Mint and Windows 10 when 10 first came out. I would keep a up to date cloned image on my NAS, so that I could use Clonezilla to swap the install on my Laptop that I had at that time. I do not even bother with dual boot on my Macbook Air, since my wife has Windows 10 on her laptop.
Thanks for that tip.
I haven't had any time to look into it yet (too busy battling Android+Java+MVC).
Just add to the post-its or bookmark. You always have to know about the whole UTC stuff when programming. Look at how the whole saving a couple of bits got everyone running around like Chicken Little when they believed that the whole world would end on 01/01/01. Or was it 01/01/00.
When I wake my Windows 10 anniversary version from sleep, frequently (not always) the time that appears is several hours off and then without my doing anything it quickly switches to the correct time.
Is this normal? Could it be an early warning...
I have a brand-new computer with a clean install of Win 10 which I've been using for about 10 days now. While the system time is always correct, every couple of days when I boot the system the date will be off by a day or two, usually ahead. I have...
Yesterday I installed Windows 10 Professional on my Acer Aspire V5-573G laptop. I installed the English (US) version even though I live in the Netherlands. When I corrected the time I have set it to the correct timezone (see screenshot)...
When I go up to my cabin, Windows always changes my time zone to Pacific. I'm in Mountain Time, and I actually go east to get to the cabin. I don't know if it's the IP address, or the WiFi network, or what, but it happens every time. If I go into...
I am located in Europe and all I know is that during the Win10 install it does not have the option to select a Time zone. The default time zone is Pacific Time which is -9 hours behind my time zone.
So for example, when installing Win10 locally...
