Gentoo: … has a modification time in the future

Dieser Beitrag ist auch in deutsch verfügbar (empfohlen).

I'm currently playing again with Gentoo and I'm getting again the “One of the files in /etc/{conf.d,init.d} or /etc/rc.conf has a modification time in the future”-error. So here is some help, if you have the same little annoyance.

Here it was the case, that the file in /etc/conf.d and /etc/init.d had no timestamp (you can check with ls -lR). You can solve this by a hearty touch /etc/{conf.d,init.d}/*; touch /etc/rc.conf.

    Dieser Fehler kann auch auftreten wenn man ntp verwendet, jedoch in /etc/conf.d/clock UTC als Format verwendet. In diesem Fall hilft nur das setzen von local statt utc. Ich habe keine Ahnung warum oder wieso, aber bei mir hilft nur das...

    Super Genial. Hat funktioniert. Danke!

    the correct command would be:

    find /etc/{conf.d,init.d} -type f -exec touch {} ;

    @Pablo Fredrikson:

    i don't think your command is correct. As first specifier "-type f" will exclude all directories like conf.d and init.d and secondly /etc/{conf.d,init.d} path will exclude /etc/rc.conf file.

    Maybe a simple:

    touch /etc/{init.d,conf.d} ; touch /etc/rc.conf

    is a bit more correct.

    Ehm (Smiley: bare one's tongue)

    i forgot: touch /etc/{init.d,conf.d}/*

    Anyway it looks like a baselayout bug:

    es kann auch sein, daß im Bios das Datum falsch eingestellt ist, so war es bei mir zumindest, das Datum stand bei 2000... (Smiley: wink)

    @Alex: Damit sowas nicht passiert, rate ich zur Installation des Paketes ntpdate und anschließend fügst du noch den ntp-client zum Boot-Runlevel hinzu. Dann synchronisiert sich der Rechner von der Uhrzeit her mit dem NTP Server, den du in der /etc/conf.d/ntp-client angegeben hast und du hast immer die 100%ig richtige Uhrzeit.

    I've been wrestling with gentoo all tonight and all of last night too; this is by far the most straightforward answer I'd got, thank you very much!
