I have changed the system time and hardware clock time to my zone (Europe/Berlin), but noticed that it goes back to some old settings. Can anybody tell me, what the problem is?
The way I understand the theory of "setting up time" is following (please correct me if I am wrong)
1. I use the commad 'ntpdate' to set up the time, using time servers. I believe that this program reads the zoneinfo from /etc/localtime (although I have never seen in any manual, how it actually decides, what is your time zone). So I copied my zone info file and then used ntpdate
% cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin /etc/localtime
% ntpdate 0.pool.ntp.org
2. Then I updated hardware clock
% hwclock --systohc
Then the time, which is shown by xfce4-datetime-plugin on my taskbar panel, adjusted to the new time within a few seconds. But today I noticed that xfce4-datetime-plugin changed back to Moscow time, even though the /etc/localtime was unchanged.
Is it some problem with xfce or with slackware, which I do not understand?
