Having recently installed Linux Mandrake 8.1 I've been having a bit of trouble with the clock. For some reason Linux insists that the hardware clock is set to GMT. So when I'm using the KDE GUI the clock is 8 hours behind (having set the time zone to PST). If I correct the time then it changes the hardware clock. The solution: Change the hardware clock to GMT. The problem: I'm running a dual boot system and the clock in Win98 uses the same time as the hardware clock, regardless of time zone. So either the clock in KDE is wrong all the time or the clock in Windows is wrong all the time. When I use the Gnome GUI then it's easy to fix because I just set it to read the GMT time and it shows the hardware clock time. But KDE doesn't have this ability. I'd have to set the timezone to be GMT. I'd do that but you have to select cities from a list. You can't just select a timezone and I can't find a city on that list that is in the GMT timezone! I'd hate to abandon KDE just because of the clock, is there some solution to this madness?
