How to change the place/date of my RedHat?
Here, in Brazil, we adopted a 'summer time', putting all the clocks 1 hour forward since last Sunday 19th.
Well, I have a MRTG in a little machine that can not run graphic interface. So, I know how to change the clock, don't know how to change the place.
Let me explain better:
MRTG uses an incremental format of date. You can see it doing:
But this number is referenced by UTC/Greenwich.
I am at Rio de Janeiro (GMT - 3). But at 'summer time', we become GMT-2.
date +%s remains with the same number, because Greenwich doesnt change. What we plan to do ? We want to move Rio 1 hour back in the map (in order to maintain the 3-hour distance in relation to Greenwich) and after put the clock 1 hour forward. That way, we fix the clock and maintain the relation intact.
So, we dont have graphic interface. In which file we find the time/local configuration ? We use Red Hat 7.2
