    It seems that the clock in the BIOS is not equal to the current system time. Change the time in the BIOS to the real time. Also check your timezone in your distro...

    This message is normal if You use remote resources (linked via nfs).
    Why?
    Time on the nfs server and your workstations are different.

    @rybo, right! I tried to compile a program residing on machine A from Machine B over the network. Got this error.

    Thanks
