Linux timezone information

Linux timezone information

Post by Chris Wesdor » Sun, 24 Feb 2002 22:38:46

Hi there,

i'm builing a linux os by using LFS ( I compiled
Glibc 2.2.5 and installed it but is did not install the zoneinfo files in
/usr/share/zoneinfo. I searched for the files on a different location but
can't find them.

There a two files in /usr/share/zoneinfo; and My
conclusion is that there was a installation of the timezone files, but
is was not finished properly. Glibc did install tzselect, zic and zdump.
But these can't do anything with the two files in zoneinfo.

My question, can i manually create the zone information files? Or is there
an extra option that i needed to give to the glibc compilation? I did the
installation with this commands:

# ../glibc-2.2.5/configure --host=i586-linux --enable-add-ons  \
# make
# make install

thanks in advance,

1. How to set timezone information?


Can anybody explain me, how to set timezone information on Linux?
First, I simple set TZ environment variable - no effect,
after I try to play with settimeofday. Sure it set desired time,
but not timezone.

Really this is the honor for me to live near London, but
please bring me back to Idaho :)
