My FreeBSD is always 2 hours behind when I'm offline although my BIOS clock shows the UTC time and my time zone is set to CET in /etc/localtime.
I'd like FreeBSD to look at the clock in BIOS, assume that it is UTC, check what time zone is chosen and then set the time on the machine accordingly.
I've already tried removing
/etc/wall_cmos_clock and running
adjkerntz -a after I changed
0. I rebooted the machine several times in different configurations during that process.
I am not interested in solutions utilizing the ntpd utility as it requires an Internet connection.
It is a dual boot system. The second system is Ubuntu 17.04 and it is its GRUB which boots FreeBSD via chain loading.
I couldn't find any solutions online so I decided to change the time manually with
# date +%H%M 1426 # date 1626
I'd love to know if there is a better solution however.
- Wrong time but right timezone @ the FreeBSD Forums.
- Daylight saving time - how time is stored, how to change it @ the FreeBSD Diary.
