Description stephan 1999-11-26 14:11:39 UTC
After having installed RedHat 6.1 on my Sony VAIO PCG-N505X notebook, I discovered the following time-related bug. I am also running Windows 98 on the notebook which interprets the RTC as the local time. Under linux I have specified the 'Europe/Amsterdam' timezone and also the entry UTC in /etc/sysconfig/clock is set to false. After booting linux the time is OK (meaning the RTC is interpreted as the local time), but somehow after suspend mode, the time is increased with one hour. This is probably, due to the wrong interpretation of the RTC as the GMT/UTC time which leads to adding one hour to the time. Basically, after booting the time is correct, but after suspend the time is wrong.

You need to recompile the kernel and change the setting under APM that specifies whether the hardware clock is in UTC or not.
