Thanks Johnny! Great info.
I edited the /etc/sysconfig/clock file and did what you said. I did
also: cp -p /usr/share/zoneinfo/UTC /etc/localtime. I'll probably
schedule a reboot, just to be sure all is clean. NTPd is already running.
Checking /usr/share/zoneinfo/, i saw GMT, GMT0, GMT-0, GMT+0, UTC &
Greenwich. Does anybody knows the differences between all these or
could provide a link to a reference? I found some infos but nothing
that explains the subtlety.
I made a diff and they are binary different. I just want to understand
better what happened to us and the "time" thing!
