Question Hwclock ? TZ ? GMT ?


Hi all,

Already read and searched a lot on this but didn't find something helpful enough.

Using RH8.0 I have since the begining my watch set to GMT-5 (should be GMT+1)

As a matter of fact, the GUI clock doesn't allow me to make the required changes.
When I ask to acces to the settings it closes itself ...

Via the console I already tried the TZ=GMT+1 ;export TZ
it goes well but when the computer is restarted this change vanishes.
Hwclock & clocksys (or something like that) have been tried as well.

In short I'd like to be able to edit the file(s) where those parameters or values are stored to change them manually.

Which files are those ?

THX 4 help !
