Description of problem:
bumped back another 4 hours. For me this meant time was almost standing
still because I reboot several times a day for varying reasons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install redhat, set the hardware clock to UTC
2. run one of the time configure programs (I believe I used the one in the
Gnome menus. Unset hardware clock set to UTC
3. reboot a couple of times and watch your hardware clock go backwards.
You need to specify exactly which program you used.
I tried using every program I could find to change the time and none seemed to
work. The first I tried was the one built into KDE. Then I tried the
control-panel. Then I tried the one built into gnome. Then I tried the
timeconfig command line (curses based).
Timeconfig works in this respect - I use that functionality 3-4 times a week
(when I do an install in a different language and forget to change the default
timezone). If you can track it down to a specific component with problems,
please file it against that component.
