If I create a file its timestamped in UTC, I've tried using timeconfig,,
hwclock --localtime, I've copied the appropriate zone file
to /etc/localtime (EST) linuxconf, and no matter what I try I still get
timestamps 4 hours in the future. If I do a hwclock --show or type date it
display the correct time.
This is causing a strange problem with Apache/Jserv/JSP where if you touch
a .jsp file the webserver throws a "File not found" error, when trying to
access the jsp file.
Today we just started experiencing this same problem on another machine. No
changes were made to the OS. We're running on Dell 2U rack mount machines
runing dual Pentium 700's. This is very odd!
Files are always timestamped in utc, the only question is how that is
displayed to the user. This doesn't sound like a bug in the kernel.
Maybe in timeconfig if it isn't fixing the appearance for you.
What does running timeconfig indicate? The most solid way to run things is with
GMT in the PC bios, and tell that to timeconfig...
Other than that, I can't reproduce your problem and have never experienced it
Closing as "worksforme", due to lack of feedback.
