    Got my linux box up ^_^


    Hi guys....

    i recently just installed linux on my system, Redhat 7.2 ( a copy i dug out frm my cd collections). Installation was a breeze...Even for a linux newbie lyke myself.... ( unlike redhat 6.2 i tried a few yrs back....kept me away frm linux ) Well.... all went well until it prompts me wif an error msg saying something about a "clock skew"... I kinda just ignored the problem... currently running Redhat 7.2 wif all the libraries updated.... ( i hope ) other than the "standard" software that comes wif the redhat distribution, i installed amsn, winex, wine, mplayer, vmware.( i think thats all...)

    Anywayz.... to the purpose of thise thread.... i need some help on how 2 solve the funny "clock skew" problem i have... and any reccomandations on what to add on to my linux box???

    My sys specs

    CPU:AMD Athlon 1ghz Tbird
    Graphics Card:GeForce 2 MX
    Sound Card:Creative Soundblaster LIVE!
    RAM:128 mb DDRam
    HDD: 40 gig Maxtor
    Ethernet Card:Linksys 10/100 Mbps

    Hope to hear from you guys soon ^_^

    Where is this clock skew problem mentioned? Is it in the boot process, and in that case when, or is it when you run specific programs?

    It might very well be the issue. Compare your local computer time to the US naval observatory's master clock at tycho.usno.navy.mil. Remember to adjust the time to your timezone, as well.
