Debian – Tell the system the hardware clock is UTC

May 4th, 2008 Blog 0 Comments

I always forget how to do this and subsequent updates bugger things up.

We are trying to tell the system that the hardware clock is set to UTC.

Edit the following: /etc/default/rcS. Modify UTC to read UTC=yes (or no depending on what you are trying to achieve).

Some additional good resources for time:  Debian Administration and the Debian online docs.
