Date Format dd/mm/yyyy in Suse 10.0 via Webmin


I have explored various entries in LQ and found date format strings DATEformat - "%d/%m/%Y" would do what I want, but am at a loss to find out which file I edit to make the server boot up with the dd/mm/yyyy format. Am accessing the server remotely with webmin so (think I) do not have access to Gnome etc (but wouldn't really know as I am a complete newbie with this). Which file should I edit to make the server always boot with the required format?

You can change your locale settings by means of the LC_ variables defined in
Code:
/etc/sysconfig/language
In particular look at RC_LC_TIME. All the locale definitions are under /usr/lib/locale. You can look at man locale for some details or read instructions in the Suse Linux Reference Guide. You can also change setting via the /etc/sysconfig editor in Yast. Anyway, I don't know how to do things via webmin, sorry.

I'll try that - Thanks!

Thanks Colucix,
I have the possibility of pulling files and inspecting in order to see where the Locale files might reside and the likely format / instruction.
At least this gives me something to start with
Cheers
