Dos anyone know where or how in the kernal does the machine time gets converted to local time? I'm most curious as to how DST gets figured. For example, the machine runs on UTC, but I can set my TZ=EST. When I get my local time, it tells me if I'm in DST or not (the kernal must also be updating my local time by 1 hour if neccessary to). Does anyone know how this is figured? thanks, j ---- Message posted via www.linuxforums.org .
