Hi all, i installed openstep 4.2 on ibm aptiva piii, (i also maded an small fun video about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXrtIs-nwD0), everything works perfectly but i have one strange behaviour of date / time on the system.

When i login to the workspace, and i set the date for example to Dec. 2, 2010 in the preferences pane, and set the time for example to 08:20:00(pm), until the systems run everything seems fine ... for example if the system was on 10 minutes, the time will show 08:30:00. Now if i power off the machine, and wait to power it on for next 20 minutes, when i power it on, and login again to the workspace, the time will show the last time when computer was powered off, in this example should be 08:50:00, but the system shows 08:30:00. Seems an fun bug, so the conclusion is that the clock run's only when the system is on :]:]

I though the error is about the old cmos mobo battery, so i replaced it with a new 2032 one, but the bug persists. Either in the bios settings, whenever i set the date / time, it always somehow get reseted to jan 01, 1999. (after login to openstep). So either the bios and os time aren't synchronised, and behave in strange way ...

So if anybody has some solution to this strange and fun situation, i would be grateful to hear about it. Thank you.

Applying OPENSTEP 4.2 User Patch 4 should solve the problem. It can be downloaded here or here. Installation instructions are available here.
