View Full Version : the problem about clock

The clock in my FC6 goes very very fast, about two times faster than genera. What happen?
I am using a Laptop, with two OSs, windows xp and FC6.

This is due to the way Linux, Windows, and the BIOS all handle keeping track of time. (Dual booting is what causes this problem)

If you want the long explanation, this is a good place to start:

If you want the short explanation and fix:
Your clock drift is skewed.
1) Delete the drift file: rm /etc/adjtime
2) Set the correct date & time: date [MMDDhhmm]
