Linux Windows time mismatch
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2012
I use both operating systems (Windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu 12.04 PP x64). The chipset is z68. I am on GMT +6 timezone. Whenever I boot with linux, I find that time is OK (GMT +6) but when I go back to windows, it always shows GMT time, although settings show GMT +6 is selected. If I go back to Linux, it always shows correct time.
My computer cannot always stay connected to internet, so it is not possible to get synchronized every time. Probably this happens because of how both OS manages their time settings, but is there any way so that I can avoid fixing them manually every time (other than synchronizing with internet, as I said, that may not be always possible).
Thanks in advance.

Remove linux fix disk error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 23, 2006
I need help with a problem. I will start from the beginning and explain what I did before everything.
I installed Suse linux 9.3 with GRUB about a week ago after I formated the windows partition. Some days ago I booted from a windows cd and removed the linux partitons and installed windows instead, because that was what I was planning to do from the beginning.
Now when I have installed windows "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" appears every time I boot. But when I use the windows xp boot cd it works and somehow can boot from the harddrive. I have tried "FIXMBR" and "FIXBOOT" but it won't work even if it appeared to be succefull.
Thankful for help, i've been sitting 5-8 hours a day the whole week. I most fix this. It's strange that it doesn't work even if I formated the partitions, it shouldn't be any data left there!
Linux Shutdown Time, the Unsung Feature

OMG! Have you seen the boot time on the Lucid Beta? Linux FTW!
- Generic Ubuntu Nerd
We all know that Linux's boot time is better than that of Windows. My average Windows 7 boot time on my laptop is close to two minutes, not counting the time it takes to load my personal settings. My Ubuntu 9.10 boot time? About 1 minute including loading Gnome. On my desktop, which is older and slower than my laptop, the Lucid Beta does even better, loading the entire system and desktop in 27 seconds!!!!1. I expect impressive things on my laptop, but to my point:
While Linux does well when it comes to boot time, one area that it has always impressed me in is the shutdown time.
No one seems to talk about shutdown time. Maybe its that Linux is so reliable, and their uptimes so long, that they have forgotten what it even means to "shutdown" a computer (you can Google this if you are one of these people).
On my laptop, Windows 7 takes from 30 seconds to a minute to fully
XP vs Linux boot time on OLPC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2008
According to Unlimited Potential's Bohdan Raciborski (paid by Microsoft), the newly tweaked XP operating system to fit on the OLPC laptop can boot in 50 seconds. He is claiming that this is 4 times faster than the Linux alternative.
That's rather impressive. Is anyone with one of the Linux versions able to verify this claim (e.g. that Linux boots in 200 seconds?). Can anyone offer any insight into why this is so much faster? If Linux had access to the extra memory that the Microsoft install requires, could it too increase its boot speed time?
This man also claims that the XP system offers up to 20 hours of battery life. How does this compare to Linux?
Please, I'm really not interested in Microsoft bashing here, just a reasoned argument on the above.

Games / 3D crashing in linux Fix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2008
Just wanted to post a solution I had to a problem I have been having lately since I installed my ATI All-In-Wonder X800 (AGP).
Whenever I would open an application requiring 3d rendering (quake 3, Wolfenstein, etc) the game would crash about a minute in and give me a sig 11 code.
I took apart my computer to realize I was running a 300 Watt power supply. I replaced it with a 500 watt and everything runs fine now (and the system is faster).
So if your getting random crashes (sig 11) from graphics intensive tasks. Check your PSU.

Has anyone used Linux as a RTOS? I am looking into some linux based OSes.
QNX - this one looks promising.
ThreadX - I am also looking into this but I have not used it yet.
If I am missing any Linux based RTOS and you know if is very good then please tell me.

HP Mini 110 (Linux) First time Linux and netbook user..Should I buy??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 21, 2009
Hi everyone, this is my first post so I apologise if I am breaking any form etiquette, I know how forums are.
Anyway, I am in the market for a netbook a secondary/backup laptop. I like the HPs mainly because of the keyboard, and since I will never be a complete fan of how small these things are for functional use, I don't feel the need to open up the bank account for these.
The most affordable ones I can find is the HP mini 110 [linux].
i have never used linux before.
for a references regarding prices...the HP is $490 or so [australian dollars]...while the Acer Aspire one is over $700
with all the same main specs.
i don't plan on doing anything other than typing up office documents emailing and surfing the net, and listening to music and watching videos.
how will this work?
i have heard that linux netbooks sometimes have toruble reading peripheral devices..like external hard drives and printers and such.
i also have a 3G mobile USB modem, that i use qu
