[Evolution] Date Time Problem


I got caught with incorrect time last Friday by Guenther. I think I have
solved it (MDK9.2)

There seems to be a bug in the MDK config tool.

The main problem is that (I think it is, I did not spend the time to do
further research) in /etc/ should be a file called localtime. In reality
there is a directory there with the same name.
Rename this directory to something else, same localtimeold.

Make a link /usr/share/zoneinfo/whateveryourtimezone to /etc/localtime

edit your /etc/sysconfig/clock manually so it shows


Adjust ZONE=America/Phoenix 
to your timezone

Adjust the time in MCC, but not timezone

Restart your ntpd after (or restart your computer).
If you didn't restart your computer, log out and in again to get the
correct time on your clock.

If you do "ntptime" as root , no errors should show up and "date" should
show the correct time and the correct timezone. 

Good luck

Regarding your time issue, I have seen some very funny things happen on
my RedHat7.3 box, so perhaps this is something you can look for:

I found that after certain editing of my date/time (not sure the exact
step), the timezone file for my timezone gets corrupted, actually ends
up being empty.  For example, I am in the eastern US, so I looked at my
/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York and found it to be empty.

Another sympton was issuing a "date" command at the prompt would show my
current local time, but then issuing a "date --utc", which should give
UTC time, would give the exact same time.

To fix the problem, I had to get a copy of the corrupted file from
another computer.

Hope this helps,

I have a date time problem in Evolution. All my outwards messages are being shown in sent folder as 13 
ahead of actual time. If I send a message at 5PM it shows in box tomorrow at 5AM. I have tried upgrading 
to 1.4.5 but that did not fix.
Any suggestions. I am using Mandrake 9.2 with a time zone of PAcfic/Auckland which should be 11 hours 
ahead of GMT
