    Once you get it set correctly in rc.conf, go back to Windows, make sure your time is correct, then reboot into Linux to see if it's correct, as it should be. I've gone around in circles on the time issue between Windows and Linux a time, or two myself. Let us know...

    Hmm..did I not install something here? It says /usr/share/zoneinfo is not a directory..

    You might have to look around for it, as the full directory name might have changed since I last looked into my own. If you don't have a zoneinfo file anywhere perhaps it didn't get installed for some reason.

    Hey oosterhouse,

    I dual boot Arch and Windows and did have the problem of time being way off. My solution was to just boot into Windows, fix it and reboot. I don't understand why that won't work for you.

    Here is my relavant section from my beloved rc.conf:
    Code:
    HARDWARECLOCK="localtime"
    TIMEZONE=Canada/Pacific
    As for /usr/share/zoneinfo...that's odd. Here is the contents of mine:
    Code:
    [bryan@turtle ~]$ ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/
    Africa      Canada   Factory    Iceland    MST7MDT  Portugal   W-SU
    America     Chile    GB         Indian     Mexico   ROC        WET
    Antarctica  Cuba     GB-Eire    Iran       Mideast  ROK        Zulu
    Arctic      EET      GMT        Israel     NZ       Singapore  iso3166.tab
    Asia        EST      GMT+0      Jamaica    NZ-CHAT  SystemV    posix
    Atlantic    EST5EDT  GMT-0      Japan      Navajo   Turkey     posixrules
    Australia   Egypt    GMT0       Kwajalein  PRC      UCT        right
    Brazil      Eire     Greenwich  Libya      PST8PDT  US         zone.tab
    CET         Etc      HST        MET        Pacific  UTC

    I'll be back to my Linux machines in a couple hours and will have a look into it from there. Guessing from within Windows is sucky, at best!

    Ok I'll go into windows a sec and see if it's off. I just tried US/Eastern as my timezone but that didn't work either.

    If none of the above works, I'll post again when I can delve into the directory.
