I have seen a lot of people who have asked how to change the time on Mandriva 2009
from 24 hour time to 12 hour format. It is pretty simple you just need to know where to look. First off its not as simple as going to the clock itself you must go to system tools/configure desktop/ then Regional & Language. there you will find a tab that lists date and time format and you must change the time format so it looks like this (pH:MM:SS AMPM) Then once you log out and back on your time will now be in a 12 hour format instead of 24 hour. Hope this helps someone.
