Today I tried to install the btc client on two linux distros, Mandriva 2011-rc1 and Puppy 5.25. The cleint would not run on Mandriva, something about a missing lib. I forget which but I want to say lib.so.jpeg. On Puppy the client complains about making sure the system time is correct.

Now for my question. Even though the btc client is complaining about the time (which is correct) it still is downloading the block chain. Is it safe to use the client? Should I change the time from CST to UTC?

You can simply use your local time, but you should make sure the timezone is configured correctly so that it can derive UTC to use on the network.

It will download the blockchain with an incorrectly configured time, but you cannot submit transactions.

No one will answer you because you threatened to call the US police on this forum.
