  1. Bug#504590: clock-setup: OpenSolaris uses local time by default

    Package: clock-setup
    Version: 0.97
    Severity: normal
    Tags: patch
    User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
    Usertags: origin-ubuntu ubuntu-patch jaunty

    Apparently OpenSolaris uses local time by default rather than UTC. This
    was reported as
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...up/+bug/279065, and,
    while I found this surprising (as noted in the comments on that bug),
    the configuration file quoted there contains a comment that seems to be
    adequate evidence. I suggest the attached patch; comments?

    Wouldn't that also catch "non open" Solaris installs, which may
    behave differently in that matter?

    I think I'd personally prefer to have the question asked in that case,
    especially as we now set the clock to the selected choice instead of
    leaving it as it is. I also guess Solaris _can_ be set to UTC.

    OTOH, I have no interest and experience with Solaris, so I can't say I
    care that much.
