Change UTC to LOCAL TIME in etch??
 
Hi,
I installed Etch with KDE and during the install it did not give me the option to select "local time" and now I need to go back and change it because it defaulted to UTC and I have two other operating systems on this box (suse & ubuntu) and that causes me to have to reset the time every time I boot into Etch.

I can't seem to figure out how to do this.
Would someone give me a kick in the right direction please?

Thanks.

Change to UTC=no in the /etc/default/rcS file.

Your welcome, I've never understood why that question stopped being asked during the install it used to be there before Etch.

The option is given if another OS is detected. I had the other drives disconnected during the Etch install because I wanted Etch to have it's own grub. So it did not give me the "utc" or "local" option. Thats what I like about Debian tho, it makes me learn. And: I don't hold my breath when I do updates.
Thanks again.
