    Arrow [SOLVED] Time problem with Linux vs Windows

    Hi
    I have a computer with 2 HDD, one is with Windows XPSP2, the other with Linux Ubuntu 7.04 (hummm 7.06 ? not sure)
    When I boot Linux, then later reboot with Windows, time is offset by 4 hours.

    Look to me Ubuntu changes time in BIOS

    How can I fix this ?

    Thanks,

    PL

    Make sure your time zones are correct.
    Why can't life have a sudo apt-get install -f command?
    Install VMWare Server 2 on a text-only system
    Need help getting your printer working in Linux?
    It's all about choice, right? Then stop flaming Windows users.

    modify your time settings, probably a timezone mess up.

    Both operating systems change the time of the hardware clock. The difference is that the one saves in the local time zone, the other one in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

    Here

    is explained how to fix the problem for Windows or for Ubuntu, which ever one you prefer.
    make install - not war!

    Oh hai!
