I've got a system clock set to the appropriate time. It does not
appear to have a Daylight Savings Time option. This is an AWARD
PnP BIOS (sorry for the i386-centricism). The kernel has:
options TIMEZONE=360 # minutes west of GMT (for param.c)
I am in US Central timezone.
Although /etc/localtime.readme says:
This is a copy of the /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Central file.
I cannot use a symlink since /usr is not mounted at boot time.
My /etc/localtime is actually a symlink:
lrwx------ 1 root wheel 30 Nov 16 17:21 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Central
I just noticed the system reports the time incorrectly:
Sat Nov 16 22:54:52 CST 1996
When it is really 23:54...
so what am I doing wrong?
Obviously something has the wrong DST behavior... but I thought I fixed
it last time around!
