Meanwhile, the Mepis forum time continues 12 minutes behind real time

The forum time is a very complicated thing. No way to fix the 12 minutes.

How about that? I never noticed that forum time is an hour and 12 minutes off from EDT. Has it always been like that?

The 12 minutes is just the way it is.

If you go into your forum settings you can tell it to use DST and that should take care of the hour.

Duh. I knew that once.

In the Installer you have to check the box to get/use UTC. I assume I've never had a problem because I use local time in my BIOS.

I will plead temporary insanity because I was surrounded by all that MS stuff and MS people. I know not to check that box and do not remember checking it, only I was the one that did the installing. Darn MS, messing up minds - and I don't have much left to mess up .... :bagoverhead:
Fixing the file fixed the problem.

Post Re: M!! Time Problem
I've had this same problem for a while now too. I haven't re-installed on this partition since I installed M11, so many month ago. I'm pretty sure the time problem started in the last month, so I don't think it was checking the wrong box during install. But who knows...I finally got sick enough of it today to check here to see if anyone else was having it.

Check your /etc/default/rcS file and see what the 'UTC=' is set to (yes or no).
