Solving the Year 2038 problem in the Linux kernel....Because of the way time is represented in Linux,a signed 32-bit number can't support times beyond January 19,2038 after 3:14:07 UTC.This Year 2038 (Y2038 or Y2K38) problem is about the time data type representation.The solution is to use 64-bit timestamps.
#Linux #kernel #Y2038 #Y2K38 #timestamps #32-bit #64-bit #computer #software #FOSS #TECHNOLOGY
