From my http://www.suse.de/~werner/CMOS-CLOCK-HOWTO:

For Vista[tm] SP2, Windows[tm] 7 and Server 2008 R2 the System
Administrator of those Windows[tm] systems could create a file:

---------------------------------- *snip* -------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
"RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001
---------------------------------- *snap* -------------------------------

Move this document to the wiki, please. Then it's more likely for
Lieschen Müller and Joe Doe to find it.

It is not my job to write Wiki pages not I've the time to do.

But you have the time to answer here?

You have the time to maintain uucp in the year 2012?

One emacs package less was the first and appreciated step forward. The
second one will follow, I hope. ;)¹

The HOWTO
from above is simply a copy I've written from scratch for one of the
several SLES bugs with local time in CMOS.

Simpyl copy and paste it to the Wiki and let the community help you to
make it look well as it was done with http://en.openSUSE.org/Mailman for
example.

I as part of this community offer you help. That's all I can offer you.

Keep in mind SUSE is part of this community, please.

IMHO a short version should become part of YaST and poped up if an
installer has local time in its CMOS/hardware/firmware clock.

First we need a Feature request and have to discuss it three years.

I'm sure at some point in time even you'll understand how important a
more community driven approach. For the future of openSUSE, SUSE, and
SLE. Maybe even for your own future.

Cheers,

Lars
