I have 2 slink boxes at home. I'm having a timezone problem on one of
them, and I can't figure out what to do about it.
If I run 'date +"%Z"' on one machine, it prints 'EDT' which is correct
because we're in daylight savings time. On the other machine, it prints
'EST' which is not correct, and the time on the system is 1 hour behind
what it should be. Running tzconfig on either machine prints out
'US/Eastern'. /etc/default/rcS sets GMT='-u' on both machines, and the
BIOS clocks are set to GMT. (actually, I can't verify that right now
because I'm at a remote location. Is there a way to get/set the BIOS
clock time from within Linux?)
Can anybody tell me how I can tell the machine to use EDT instead of
EST??? I'm stumped.
