sets my clock one hour off. Right now, it's 9:51pm, but it says 8:51pm. I live in EST (St. Petersburg, FL), and in my rc.conf file, I have:
# HARDWARECLOCK="UTC" TIMEZONE=EST
I don't think I'm missing anything else. I just want to put the ntpdate command into a cron file, but it sets it to the wrong time. Does anybody know what's going on? I've even tried this when I wasn't drunk.
Probably some issue with daylight saving time. Read the installation howto to find out how to set TIMEZONE something that refers to the place the box is located, not a fixed time zone.
Also, letting the hardware clock running UTC time won't work on a Linux/Wincrap dual-boot box.
In my rc.conf:
I think this is the standard way to set up timezones.
The above seems to work for me with ntpdate.
