I don't know if this has been solved yet or not. but has anyone come up with a fix for the Date/Time settings on the latest rom yet? The clock always gets off when the zaurus is suspended. Its really annoying to have the Date and Time off when using PIMs. :-/. Thanks ahead of time if someone knows the fix for this.

The onboard clock has to be managed by the kernel, so this would have to be addressed in a future version of the ROM. I don't believe you'll see a fix in 1.0.6, but it has already been brought up in another thread. We are all aware of it.

Another idea would be to port ntp to pdaxrom. That would allow the Z to sync to a network clock at regular intervals. I believe this is on the roadmap also.

The thread on 1.0.6, while it is getting quite long, might be a better place to inquire.

This worked for me:
  • remove /etc/localtime if it exists (so that you are working in UTC)
  • use ntpdate to set the system clock to the correct time in UTC (or date --set)
  • use hwclock to set the hardware clock from the system clock(ie: hwclock --systohc)
  • tell hwclock to work in UTC (ie: hwclock --utc)
  • copy /usr/share/zoneinfo/whatever/whatever from a *nix box to /etc/localtime
  • turn zaurus on and off and enjoy having the correct time smile.gif

The time/timezone problems are going to be fixed in the next release (fingers crossed).
