I try to set the time right, but the clock likes to show that it is 5 hours earlier than what it is. I have checked the timezone, which is appropriately at EST.

The patches are already installed in 64studio... You should not patch it twice! Why do you need a kernel you compiled yourself? Cheers

why I'm compiling a custom kernel

I should have prefaced that I have a Sempron processor. Being that my system has experienced some oddities running the 486 kernel provided by 64studio, I thought it best to just compile a custom kernel for k7 arch. Now I think I've found the ultimate root of the problem . . . I believe that my motherboard went "poop". Gives me a better reason to get an AMD64 system :D. My thanks to all who have assisted.

I had a similar

I had a similar problem. This helped: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Feisty/Troubleshooting#How_to_disable_system_time.2Fdate_from_being_reset_to_UTC_.28GMT.29

It's still a problem

Thanks for your response. UTC is set to "no", timezone is EST. I discovered a unique twist to this: anytime I use a stock kernel from Debian or 64studio, the clock is fine. If I use a kernel I compiled, I have the above problem.

a little closer to the issue

compiled a vanilla kernel tonight. No clock problem. Apparently 64studio doesn't like Ingo Molnar's preemption patches. Is there a reason for this that anyone can think of?
