Make timezone sticky?


Recommended Posts

My usual tricks for changing the timezone aren't working. I want to have the Owl boot with the proper timezone. I've tried changing /etc/init.d/system, setting export TZ, putting PDT in /etc/TZ, etc., and none of them stick. It always starts in UTC. Anyone have the magic formula? Thanks!

Try editing:
/etc/config/system

in section:
config system

change:
option timezone 'UTC'
to:
option timezone 'whatever timezone'

reboot and verify with the date command and/or cat /tmp/TZ

OK, so when you reboot and check with, for example, the date command, the timezone is still UTC and not the timezone you previously configured?
