[solved] system time
  • sanekssaneks April 2010
    I think I must be blind. Installed slitaz3 on a (now *very happy*) friends's box yesterday, but I coul nt figure out how to change the system time after install. incontrolbox: no effect (set to CET and hit change, tried both syncing with system time or net.. I always ended up 2 hours early. I need CET (Berlin).

    Tried to change it in BIOS,too. No funciona tampoco.
    I reckon this should be very easy. But we could not find it in all the menus.

    If your not booting Windows on the same motherboard,the hardware clock should be set to UTC.

    According to Berlin is currently on CEST which is UTC + 2 hours

    Open terminal
    root@slitaz: echo "UTC-2" > /etc/TZ

    Logout and in to check time, if correct writefs if not a full install

    If you boot into windows on the same hardware it will set the motherboard clock to your local time.

    root@slitaz: echo "UTC" > /etc/TZ
    should get you the correct time in slitaz with windows controlling the hardware clock

    no, windows is wiped, I set time for CEST. but I found slitaz gets the right time after shutting down the computer and cold starting again it's good.

Howdy, Stranger!
