|My system time fell back by one hour between DEC 31, 2010 and JAN 1, 2011. Has anyone else had this happen when the year changed? My system is SAM Flex with OS4.1u2.|

No problem here with my Sam440ep and 4.1u2.

No problem here too.

It must be a problem with my system then. I also have problems when DST starts and ends. Maybe I have some program that is altering my time; not sure.

Do you have FACTS installed?

My problem is that I never look at my system time.
After I read your post, I looked, and my time was only off by about a HALF an hour. . . ahead!
If the system clock slowly gains time, is that only HALF as big a problem as jumping an hour at a time? :-D

My system slowly gains time too. I've never bothered to report that because every computer I've owned gains or looses time over the long run. If I didn't correct my system time for a year or two, it would probably be a half hour off or more.

No. I have long suspected that YAM may be a problem. When DST starts and ends, YAM starts complaining about time settings with a requester. If I cancel the requester, the system will automatically adjust the time correctly. If I let YAM change settings then the time is an hour off a day or two later. I suspect that YAM and the system AutoDST are somehow in conflict. I've probably set something wrong in YAM or my system but I haven't figured out what it is.

|@anyone with clock problems...
Try adding this at the end of your startup-sequence just before EndCLI>NIL:
Date server pool.ntp.org port 123 >nil:
You might have to change the wait to allow roadshow to get up and running, I used 10 on my micro, 8 works on the flex.

That won't work on my system because I still have dialup Internet and the system doesn't have Internet access until I start Dialer and go online. Most of my computer use takes place without the system being online. I may take a look at the possibility of adding the above lines to a startup script for Dialer.
