[Bug 216059] New: G5 should use UTC instead of localtime
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

Summary: G5 should use UTC instead of localtime
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: PowerPC
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: yast2-maintainers@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: olh@xxxxxxxxxx

There is some flaky code in the powermac kernel that adjusts the system clock
based on some timezone value in the nvram. MacOS 9 uses this timezone offset.

This code runs only on 32bit, OS9 does not run on G5. A G5 has to run always
with UTC instead of localtime. YaST has some code to force localtime on pmac.
This should happen only on 32bit, not on 64bit.
