Wrong time since BST started
« on: April 20, 2009, 02:01:49 am »

Since the clocks went back, my time keeps reverting to pre BST, even though I changed it manually with the date command. The BIOS is reporting the right time and the other installed Linux I have on this machine is also showing the right time, so it's just a Vector problem

This is in Vector light btw

Never mind, I've sorted it myself. I was obviously using the wrong format or wrong command last time

This is what I used instead for those with similar problems

Code: [Select]
date +%T -s "10:10:10"
Where the 10:10:10 is the hours, minutes, seconds required

You need to log out and back in for it to take effect. I just used CTRL+ALT+Backspace
