Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org, and the forum tell me my answer was wrong.
Run command:

$ date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

and get

b7093e2653b5c2355b6d0bd6c08337c82c3a8f2e10be73ff62b19d7d1f7c0e63

but the above code can not be used as the register answer. Any idea to fix this?

I run

# ntpd -qg

to synchronize the time.
I tried

$ date -u +%W$(uname)

and get

00Linux

.
Is it something wrong with this?

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

No. That is what I get.

There was a report yesterday of someone having dfficulties registering: look in the Forum & Wiki subforum.

You have already registered on the boards; why are you trying to register again?

Moving to that board...

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

Problem solved.
I try

$ date -u +%V$(name)

instead of

$ date -u +%W$(name)

and it works.

I am sorry if it bothers you, but I just want to use another username by registering again.
Thanks for your reply.

I had the same issue and my system clock is working fine, I just didn't want to set up UTC in my pc (I'll probably end up using it but it seemed easier at the time I was installing Arch). I also tried running that command on different remote linux shell accounts and they produced the same result.
To register I had to learn what the "date" command was supposed to output and replace it with an echo '..'. I really think you should warn new users about the UTC issue or else you'll keep getting bug reports and posts here.

BTW i'm new to Arch and I really love it, installing and configuring it is kind of addictive

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

I had the same issue.  My clock is set to the right time sync'd with ntp however I don't use UTC.  I was able to create a wiki account using the %V instead of %W.

ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Apr 22  2012 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

Same issue here. My clock seems right, but I don't use UTC either. Using %V instead of %W worked fine though.

$ cmp /etc/localtime /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Belgrade

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

That is weird, %V is ISO week and starts with 01, %W starts with 00. The only reason I can see this happeneing is if %V is used for the check or if the server has the wrong time (which I'm fairly sure it doesn't).

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

It is a trick, Arch won't let people who refuse to google solutions by themselves register by placing this intentional bug in forum registration big_smile

It broken wiki registration as well.

Re: Can not register in bbs.archlinux.org [SOLVED]

It's probably only a tiny chance that what I'm about to say will be useful to anyone, but... For those out there who tried to get "the answer" using Cygwin - like I did because I've yet to install any kind of browser on my new Arch system - you'll need to use something like this:

$ date -u +%V"Linux"|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

Cygwin gives a different value for $(uname).  On my machine:

CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64

Which breaks things most mischievously. big_smile

That's the only logical explaination for this.

Or you just move this thread to try this and everybody reports in on how it once worked for him.
