Hi. I usually use Windows, but a friend of mine tell me about Linux and I decided to try it. I install a Sabayon distribution and now I have a small problem. I can't configure the clock. I change the timezone, but nothing. Help me please... PS: Sorry my english, but is the best that I can do.

well, since Sabayon is a gentoo fork I'm assuming this will work. Open your console and find your correct timezone file. It should be in /usr/share/zoneinfo. In my case its this file '/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Phoenix'. Then just copy that file to /etc/localtime cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Phoenix /usr/share/zoneinfo That should be all it takes to change it.

You're actually supposed to symlink that file, because zonedata may change. ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Vienna /etc/localtime would do that for Vienna in Europe, for example. [Modified by: Johannes Truschnigg on June 17, 2008 07:12 PM]
