Package: installation-reports

Boot method: CD
Image version: i386 netinstall etch release candidate 2 from 2/22/07 and from 3/19/07 8:50 Machine: Dell Optiplex 745, Pentium D 2.8 GHz processor, hardware clock set to local time in the BIOS.

Installed in expert mode.
The installation seemed to go fine and the machine rebooted OK. With both versions of the installer, even though I had chosen UTC NO in clock setup during installation, 'date' did not give the correct time and was off by our UTC offset. In looking at files, /etc/adjtime contained the line UTC while /etc/default/rcS contained the line UTC=no (which seems contradictory). Other than /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh, I could find no other instances of UTC/utc in any /etc files. As POST messages scrolled by, about the time the system clock was being set, I did see something about the clock timing out but could not find any message in either dmesg output or /var/log/* relating to that.

If I set the clock to UTC in the BIOS, then the 'date' time was correct. Because I will be installing Debian dual boot with Windows on some machines, I will want the clock set to local time in the BIOS. Windows was not installed while I was testing the Debian install on this machine.

 clock-setup - set up clock (udeb)
Closes: 415871
 clock-setup (0.15) unstable; urgency=low
   * Also change the UTC/LOCAL setting in /etc/adjtime. This will hopefully
     rid us of the incidental reports of a wrong clock setting after the first
     reboot. Thanks to Karen Larson for pointing us in the right direction.
     Closes: #415871.
