Re: [yast-devel] Hardware Clock Set to UTC

>> why was this moved to the NTP details screen?

It should be set if there is no windows partition detected. Otherwise

What if one has FAT and HPFS but no Windows?

What if only post-WinXP NTFS and no FAT (Windows using UTC instead of local)?

unchecked. If it doesn't happen, then you should report it. So correct
behavior is quite easy to predict.

First one must remember the problem so that one can remember to go into the otherwise completely unnecessary details screen. Even then I don't necessarily know the right answer yet, as the partitioning isn't presented until after the date/time section is past.

Also, having a mix of UTC and Local on one LAN is its own set of problems I prefer to avoid, and so set to Local on most installations whether only Linux is present or not, because any installations ever active on the LAN are in local time.
