It's not an error.
Quote:> Can anyone tell me what this means and how to fix it?
It means what it says (which word do you not understand?. "Skew"?
"Skew" is an english word meaning "warp", or "bias"). A skewed clock is
a warped clock. Since the make process depends on file creation times
to know what to make or rebuild when, obviously the results after
detecting a whacky system clock may be suspected to be skew-whiff
You fix it by understanding the source of the problem, correcting it,
then repairing the effects.
Would you be running atop an nfs-mounted directory? Did you change the
date/time recently? Has your cmos battery expired? What ARE the times
on the files you are using? Tell us some of this - or tell yourself! -
and you'll get more info. The most probable cause depends on your
circumstances, so I can't guess. NFS?
