Bug#48866: Time Zone config broken re: 'GMT or local' selection
Current potato boot-floppies don't correctly handle the question:
"Will the hardware clock be set to GMT?"
A change in the sysvinit package has caused this. The file
/etc/default/rcS now contains the following:
"# Set UTC=yes if your system clock is set to UTC (GMT), and UTC=no if not.
I usually answer no to the question and I ended up with the above
Methinks that utilities/dbootstrap/tzconfig.c needs to be fixed. I'd
fix it myself if I knew how :)
