System Time Settings - Mint & (K)ubuntu

Postby kztyrvlq on Sat Dec 16, 2006 1:28 pm

Good Day All . . .

My system uses a few removable hard drives. My primary 'production' hard drive is (K)ubuntu 6.10 using KDE while my 'development' hard drive is Linux Mint 2.0 using KDE.

If the development system becomes mature then it becomes production and something else (maybe) becomes development.

Unfortunately this creates some problems with the computer itself, especially the system time. One hard drive is set for GMT display and the other is set for GMT+3.5 (local time). I did not do the same thing at installation.

I have researched coordinating them to local time but I cannot find the config file. ntp.conf sets out the time servers but doesn't address the displayed time.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you tried ~$sudo tzconfig ?

Good Day . . .

Thanks for the reply.

All the usual suggestions will set up either the correct time or the correct time zone but none will setup the actual display mode.

I know how to correct the problem in Red Hat!

Modify one of the lines in /etc/sysconfig/clock to GMT=false.

Unfortunately (K)ubuntu / Mint does away with this config file and puts the data somewhere else. The somewhere else is where I will find the answer.

Thanks again.
