Daylight Savings and the Linux System Clock
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has written an article on how to make sure that your Linux system (also applies to other Unix-like operating systems) is ready for the time zone change in a few days. So far, I’ve tested my computers using the zdump utility he mentions and all of them were already prepared. I highly recommend this article, especially if you have an older installation or haven’t been doing your updates.
Until we wake up and stop fiddling with the clock, it will be necessary every few years as they change the starting and ending dates. Or maybe we can all just move to Arizona, where they do not use Daylight Savings Time.
