Default timezone is US/Eastern and not UTC
Last modified: 2018-05-14 09:03:30 UTC
The default timezone for openSUSE Kubic is now US/Eastern and no longer UTC.
YaST Team, I need your help with this one - I've tried to figure it out for myself, but I'm at a loss
The problem in a nutshell
We want Kubic to be using UTC by default unless the user customises it explicitly
If we use the regular control.xml parameter "timezone_readonly", then the user cannot customise their timezone.
If we disable that parameter, then Kubic immediately inherits it's timezone from the selected locale
Meaning the default timezone becomes US/Eastern because the default language is English US
Is there any way of disabling the automatic selection of timezone based on language choice?
experimenting with my own potential fix - will report back if it doesn't work and really needs YaST team time.
Well what do you know, experiments worked.
