I reset the time as per your instructions, and have booted the computer
several times during the day. So far the computer seems to be
presenting time and date ok, in gmt not local time. That is fine with
me with all the traveling I do for work, so I will just leave it this
What is the output of the command "date" on your system? If it says
something like this:
Sat Nov 7 13:01:43 CET 2009
If the letters there say some local time (like CET above), but the time is
UTC, then you do have a problem. Repeat the procedure taking attention to
the --utc or --localtime as I said in my post.
If you still get the wron time after that, make sure your timezone is
properly configured in YaST.

here is the output of "date"
Sat Nov 7 19:28:24 EST 2009
The time in yast is set to Eastern Time, yet the time on the computer is
displayed in GMT in a 12 hour clock. The current display is 07:32pm, so
I add 12 hours to it to get GMT time of 1932 hours gmt.
Even though the time is set to eastern time, it is displaying in gmt. I
don't know how to set it to right, so --- back to you for evaluation and
Eastern Standard Time (in the USA) is GMT -5 hours. When it is 1932 GMT
it is 1432 EST in the USA. Perhaps this is why you think the time is
off. By the way, while under daylight savings time the difference is 4
hours (GMT -4).
