Change from localtime to UTC (GTM+2) not working
I have used linux for years now, in a multiboot configuration with Windows...
Thats why I used, as suggested, localtime in linux as opposed to GMT.
Now that I realized the benefits from using GMT and tried to change to it in Mandrake 10 Control Center, I seemed to work... I chose Helsinki as my timezone.
But when I reboot, the time is always 2 hours behing my localtime (Helsinki GMT +2). I believe this happens, because NTPD does not understand I'm not living in London (GMT, UTC). Using date command says it is in UTC timezone (for example 10. 01:54:07 UTC 2005)... How do I change this so that I can still use NTP (ntpdate -u tock.keso.fi
for example in my init scripts) to correct my hardware clock and still get the correct timezone time??????
Tried something like ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki /etc/localtime
with no success..
The thing here is that while I can set my kde applet to Athens/helsinki timezone, every other program sees my clock as being 2 hours behind.... Icluding mythtv and crontabs.
