View Full Version : Time difference between OSX & OS9

06-06-2002, 03:27 AM
Maybe this was posted elsewhere, but I couldn't immediately find it.
When I use my X startup disk, the correct time is displayed, but when booting in 9, it's a couple hours off. If I fix the time in 9 and later boot into X, then it's wrong there.

Any ideas?

Could it be something to do with UNIX's system clock being GMT (or UTC to be correct) and only being displayed in local time zone. IE is the offset you are seeing the same offset you are from GMT time? I never boot into 9.0 much less use Classic so I have not noticed this.

Actually, my X settings were fine, but I gave my Classic settings a look and they were set for California.....explaining the time difference.

Hehehe, sometimes I think rebooting into the other OS takes too long, but I doubt I could go from Ohio to Cali in that time!!

Thanks for the thought, it solved my problem!
