what is the comeand to do this? and do i need to be root to do this?
Firstly, see if "/etc/localtime" is linked to the right timezone for you.
If yes then you see if "hwclock" has the right setting
see if "/etc/hardwareclock" has "UTC" or "localtime" and change accordingly to what you want.
then run date and set the right hour.
You can change all this interactively without messing with all these files i mentioned by running "timeconfig" as root and it will
ask you the same questions as the installation did.
This way you can set it in 2 seconds but i mentioned the manual way too just for the sake of knowledge.
