|YaK:: FAQ : How can I set the default TimeZone to UTC in Fedora Core 1?||[Changes] [Calendar] [Search] [Index] [PhotoTags]|
So do this:
cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/UCT /etc/localtime
In fact, you can copy any zoneinfo file from beneath /usr/share/zoneinfo to /etc/localtime to set the machine's default timezone.
( How I figured this out: I ran strace on /bin/date, and saw it open /etc/localtime )
The TZ environment variable can override it; see man tzselect for details.
