I have linux mandrake 9.1 on a clamshell ibook. The battery ran out will I was at school. Basically what was may computer lost it's pram, which is not important accept for the fact that it set my time to Jan. 1904. When I log into mandrake and go to change the time and log into root, I am unable to to change the time. I had the same problem even for the battery ran out. What is the problem?

I have little experience with laptops, but it sounds like your bios battery is dead.

Your time is correct as long as you have power going to it (battery/adapter), but after your battery dies.... sad.gif

Though I may be wrong. happy.gif

So, if you type 'date 05210943' in a command shell, what kind of message do you get?
Run it as root!

Date format is Month Day Hours Minute, all are 2 digit
Don't care about setting year yet, as your year is 1904, not 2004 sounds like a y2k problem!
