Hi,

(-5:-57) is the uptime.

see # uptime command.

it seems your clock is not set correct or was not correct before reboot!

Check your clock!

"(-5:-57)" It mean uptime after reboot 5 hours:57 minute. That's right? If it's correct, what it mean "5:57".

I confuse between minus and no minus.

thanks in advance

I believe he said what it's supposed to mean. Probably your system clock is set wrong and gets set properly when the machine boots.

Just means that the clock probably was set to 23:56 dec 5 when it was started and then set to the proper time.

If that's the issue and you have the hwclock application it's an easy fix.
$ ntpdate
$ hwclock --systohc

Add --utc if you want it to be in UTC.
(I believe there's an option to date to push system time to hardware clock but I can't seem to remember it :P)
