TIMECONFIG(8)                                       TIMECONFIG(8)

NAME
       timeconfig  - simple interface for configuring system time
       parameters

SYNOPSIS
       timeconfig [--utc] [--arc] [--back] [--test] [timezone]

DESCRIPTION
       timeconfig provides a simple method  of  configuring  both
       /etc/sysconfig/clock  and /etc/localtime which is compati-
       ble with both the standard Red  Hat  startup  scripts  and
       timeconfig(8).

       If  a timezone is specified, the system timezone is change
       to the timezone specified. Otherwise, a menu of  available
       timezones  is  displayed.  If  --utc  is given, the system
       clock is assumed to  be  in  universal  (Greenwhich  mean)
       time.  If --arc is used, the system clock is assumed ot be
       stored in the format used by the ARC platform  on  Digital
       Alpha  platforms  (the  --arc  option is only available on
       Alpha hardware).

       The timeconfig window contains a Cancel button by default.
       If  --back is specified at run time, a Back button is pre-
       sented instead.

       If --test is specified, timeconfig may be run  as  a  non-
       root user, and no changes are written to the filesystem.

RETURN CODES
       timeconfig  returns 0 on success, 2 on error, and 1 if the
       user cancelled the program (by using either the Cancel  or
       Back button).

FILES
       /etc/sysconfig/clock
                           Configures  the  format  used  by  the
                           hardware clock.

       /etc/localtime      Symlink pointing to the default  time-
                           zone.
