Re: [SOLVED] Funny Clock Save On Shutdown

I got tired of looking through scripts so I simply reinstalled my Point Linux from scratch. And blow me down, the "funny" is no longer there. Clock and NTP behave perfectly all the time.

[SOLVED] Funny Clock Save On Shutdown

On shutdown my Point Linux sets the hardware clock in an unusual way. Debian normally expects the hardware clock to be on UTC. On bootup it applies an offset depending on the locale (in my case UTC+10) to work out the local time on the desktop. Whilst running it keeps synchronising the system clock ...

Re: An Unexpected Hit!

only one word less in your grub config file #standard #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" #without splash GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet" and of course update-grub for writing new settings plus sevices (to uncheck plymouth). Too right, Maroman, I've been doing that for...

An Unexpected Hit!

Two weeks ago my brother-in-law emailed me from Holland and asked what did I know about Point Linux. I was intrigued enough to go and find out so I installed the 64-bit version on my desktop. A great experience! I installed from the live disk and had a working system going in no time flat. This must...

Nothing to congratulate, Maroman, just wait long enough and we'll all get old!

Do you Update Regularly?

Do you update your Point Linux regularly?

And if so, do you use the Point Linux Updater or do you use
sudo atp-get dist-upgrade?

Re: Is the Point Linux for your Grandma?

Will deep or good knowing of Debian be needed for using Point Linux? In other words would you set it up for your grandmother? ;) And is it good for 1GB RAM and old PC? Hi Alex, At 80 I'm too old still to have grandparents myself but my 79 year old wife is a grandmother, even a great-grandmother! Sh...
