System Time Adjustment

The computers hardware clock stores the date and time in either UTC or the local timezone. Unfortunately, there is no way for the software to tell which!

When the Linux kernel boots, it assumes that the hardware clock is set in UTC. However, systemd later updates the system (software) time according to the contents of the file /etc/adjtime.

If your system (software) time is off by a number of hours corresponding to your local timezone, try replacing UTC with LOCAL or vice versa. This change should take effect after the next reboot.

When building KaarPux, the third line in /etc/adjtime is filled with the value of KX_UTC_OR_LOCAL from kaarpux/master/default_definitions.shinc or kaarpux/custom_definitions.shinc.
