NAME
     TIMEZONE - set default system time zone and locale

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/TIMEZONE /etc/default/init

DESCRIPTION
     This file sets the time zone environment  variable  TZ,  and
     the  locale-related  environment variables LANG, LC_COLLATE,
     LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, LC_MONETARY, LC_NUMERIC, and LC_TIME.

     /etc/TIMEZONE is a symbolic link to /etc/default/init.

     The  number  of  environments   that   can   be   set   from
     /etc/default/init is limited to 20.

SEE ALSO
     init(1M), rtc(1M), ctime(3C), environ(5)

NOTES
     When changing the TZ setting on x86 systems, you must make a
     corresponding  change to the /etc/rtc_config file to account
     for the new timezone setting. This can  be  accomplished  by
     executing  the  following commands, followed by a reboot, to
     make the changes take effect:

     # rtc -z zone-name
     # rtc -c


      where zone-name is the same name as the  TZ  variable  set-
     ting.

      See rtc(1M) for information on the rtc command.
