Re: [yast-devel] New Installer: Sprint Review 2014-01-24
Hello,

GeoIP used by Installer
- Approval has been given
- No decision on implementation yet

Just as an idea - besides automatically setting the location, GeoIP
could also help with the BIOS clock settings (local time vs UTC).

Get the current time from a NTP server and compare it to to the (based
on the location) "expected" time. This should tell you if the BIOS clock
is set in UTC or local time.

Needless to say that you can't expect people to have the clock set very
exact, so the time matching should be fuzzy with at least +/- 10 minutes
difference allowed.

Christian Boltz

There's such a thing as real life? Is it packages for openSUSE yet?
Will there be a YaST2 module for easy configuration? Is it going to be
included in 11.2 or is it so complex it's going to have to wait until
11.3? More importantly, will it be on the DVD, or would people need to
use one of the online repos to download it?
