#849 closed System Defect (invalid)

Running the installer changes the system clock

Reported by: gef_f Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Installer Version: 10-STABLE

Running the 10 beta installer changes the system time. I just noticed the clock is about 2 hours late. This happened when installing 9.2 as well.

Confirmed. After switching from PC-BSD over to my windows partition the system time was changed in windows by -7 hours.

Not so sure this is a bug. Do you have your timezone set properly on both systems? PC-BSD uses NTPD to sync the time, so assuming the timezone is correct, its only going to change it to that. I.E if you have PC-BSD set to UTC and windows to localtime, or visa-verse that could be the source of the problem.

FWIW, it works fine on my dual-boots here.

The problem occurs only when installing. When the system is running, there are no problems. There were no selections for time zones during the installation that I noticed and furthermore, it would probably be even hours if those were related.

Ok, it could be a combined effect. As the installation doesn't really run for 2 hours. Also, my local time zone is GMT+2. But the time change was significantly in uneven hours, which I think would suggest some other issue in combination as well.

The latest attempt to install PC-BSD didn't change the system clock in any way. This attempt was succesfull until the first boot issue, described in ticket #848.
