August 14th, 2008, 07:45 AM
Hi, i have a partition with /home and another one for /. Yesterday, i reinstalled Ubuntu 8.04 (32 bits) maintain the partition /home.

My problem is that when i select, in the clock, other places for the time and the weather (click in configure in other cities), ubuntu says:

"No se pudo establecer la zona horaria del sistema" - "It was not possible to establish the hourly zone for the system"

"Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"

And, the hour don't change.
For example, i have in my configuration, Granada (where i live), Madrid, and London (Canada, where i am now), and only i can select madrid or granada (both have the same hours) but London, with other hour i can't.

thanks for your help

Are you wired to the Internet during installation?

Burn a new CD. Do md5sum on the iso, burn at 4x or less. Check CD integrity before install

Sometimes reinstallaing is not a universal fix all. That is the Widows way of doing things. Have you tried:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

It could be a bad burn too.
