Here in the UK we are UTC+1. I set the time using 'date'. However it keeps resetting back to standard UTC, I'm guessing via a NTP time server.
I've tried setting the timezone with tzselect but it does not change the time, it remains at UTC instead of local time.
Therefore TZ='Europe/London' will be used. Local time is now: Thu Jun 25 10:57:48 BST 2009. Universal Time is now: Thu Jun 25 09:57:48 UTC 2009.
The above output is correct but the time does not actually get changed.
I either need to disable auto updating of time or ideally setting the timezone correctly.
