* zdump -v US/Pacific | grep 2007
What's all that stuff mean after one does the above command (mine

Unless you are in a business, where time of messages is important, what difference does it make if the time change is out of sync? I'd fix mine,
if someone would say "YaST this" for 9.3 So somebody tell me,
Yast (timefix). But i really don't care if it's fixed. The clock is a few minutes off now, who cares if it's off an hour? Am I missing something?

Hmm, ntp service is free, and the software ships with suse. Why would any
linux user settle for having the wrong time on their system?

Hmm, ntp is not relevant -- it has nothing to do with DST, the system clock runs on UTC.

You are right about timestamps in logs, though; they use local time, and here the correct zoneinfo for you US folks is of interest.
