Thread: Time and Device Error.

  1. #1

    Question Time and Device Error.

    Hello all.

    Still a newbie at openSUSE.

    My clock dose not work the time and date is back at Dec 2008, i change it back to the right time but its gose back to (Dec 2008) after I reboot. also the auto device mounter dose not work, both errors happened at the same time.

    Now this has happened to me twice, the first time it happened i just reinstalled but i really don't wanna keep reinstalling every time this happens.

    Has this happened to anyone before?

    This happened to mike

    My time stand still? - openSUSE Forums

    He solved it by updating packages.

    Caf4926 gave some advice such as checking Yast>System>Date and Time
    and make sure Hardware Clock is set to UTC

    Good Luck,

    Yeah I saw that in the title but you didn't post any errors or anything. What error are you getting? What are you doing when this error occurs?

    There's a little battery inside your computer which allows key information to be held between powering off and on, including the time. When it goes flat the computer doesn't know the time so it invents one. That 2008 time is usually the default for all motherboards.

    So check the battery -- called cmos battery, it could be flat.

    Sorry i must of explained it Wong. It dose not give out any errors it just dose not work. Like time time works, its tell the right time and date now thanks to the (UTC) seting.

    But my widgets are not telling the time or even working for that sake. (New Device Notifier) is broken . and all the clocks don't display anything :/

    And yes I tryed the CMOS battery. when through the BIOS and it tell the right time.

    Also you can go to Yast>Date and Time>Change>Synchronize with NTP Server.
    That way you will have your "official" time all the time.

    Run
    Code:
    date
    Then
    Code:
    hwclock
    Then show us and tell us clearer what desktop what clock, is this KDE are you saying in the taskbar?
