Description scottk 1999-08-17 18:13:54 UTC
On a system where the hardware clock is set to UTC, using
timetool to set the time will cause the incorrect time to be
written to the hardware clock (it will be set to the local
time).

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-17 18:33:59 UTC
Use timeconfig to denote whether the system clock is in
UTC or localtime...
