clock-applet shows invalid time
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:11 EST
Description of problem:
Clock on panel show always one time (not moving) and it is the time of system
start + shift from UTC (even if system clock uses UTC option is not set). I
checked system clock with date function and it shows proper value.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I had the same problem today. It is maybe related to the update of the kernel
package from kernel-188.8.131.52-27.fc7 to kernel-184.108.40.206-33.fc7. The problem first
time appeared when I booted with -33 after an update. It also disappears when I
reboot with -27.
The same date as shown at gnome panel is also in all lines of syslog, but date
command on the command line gives the right time.
Probably should be reasigned as kernel bug.
I can confirm that this bug appeared after the kernel update (-33).
I may be wrong but it looks like clock-applet returned to life after I used
