CentOS 5 :: Timezone Change Not Working?

Oct 6, 2010

I was needing to change the timezone on a CentOS 5.1 (but upgraded to 5.3) machine that doesn't have X installed nor did it (initially) have the system-config-date package installed. After some Googling it appeared that all I needed to do was copy over the desirec zoneinfo file to /etc/localtime and edit the /etc/sysconfig/clock file to zone that I choose. I then set the time and used that to set the hardware clockhe original timezone was "America/New_York" (EDT) and was wanting to change it to "US/Central" (CDT). After making the changes, when I do a "date" command it is still reporting the time in EDT. I then installed the system-config-date package and tried using /usr/sbin/timeconfig. I still get the result that the timezone is reported in EDT. The time is technically correct but is an hour ahead since its using EDT to report the time.

Ubuntu :: Change Resolution Permanently Of Second Monitor?

Apr 13, 2011

I use a laptop and Ubuntu 10.10 x86. Problem is I have a second monitor with 1280x1024 native resolution, and that resolution is not displayed in modes.So I solved my problem temporarily using this: Code:xrandr --newmode 1280x1024_60.00 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --addmode VGA1 1280x1024_60.00 The 1280x1024 mode appears and I do "apply" -> all OK. And then I press "make default" (where I get a pop screen confirmation warning me that will be the default config after reboot) - nice! Problem is: "make default" don't work! And I have to add a new mode after each login.

General :: How To Change Permanently A Script

Apr 28, 2010

I play MAME in Ubuntu 9.10 and every time i boot my PC I calibrate my joystick with jscal. The correction values are stored in a script ( /etc/joystick.cal ) but when I reboot, the old values are written again in so I have either to repeat calibration or open the script and give the right correction values (which I have stored somewhere). So , what is the way to save my changes in this script permanently ?

General :: Ubuntu - Change Swap Disk Priority Permanently?

Aug 8, 2010

I'm using two swap disks. Changing the order they are in in /etc/fstab and using "pri" in fstab doesn't have any effect. This is what it looks like /etc/fstab

#swap on other disk
UUID=90a1550c-84d6-4bde-8bc1-7c15292980f1 none swap sw,pri=-1 0 0
#swap on same disk
UUID=13b70e65-f1c3-4728-920f-9e92467d1df0 none swap sw,pri=-2 0 0


Its opposite of what it is in fstab, and changes to fstab have no effect.

Debian :: Permanently Change Locale From POSIX To En_GB?

Apr 3, 2010

All my LC environment variables are currently set to POSIX at boot, though I can't find the startup script that does this. I've grepped through /etc/rcS.d and /etc/rc2.d but no luck. In /etc/default/locale, LANG is set to en_GB.UTF-8, which is my preferred locale. But this doesn't stop all the LC's being set to POSIX. Consequently, my dates follow the American convention, which I find hard to read.

I tried resetting with update-locale LC_TIME=en_GB.UTF-8. This changed all the locales to en_GB but only for the session. When I rebooted, everything went back to POSIX. The only change is that en_GB.utf-8 is now in the /etc/default/locale file as the value of LC_TIME as well as LANG.

General :: Any Way To Permanently Change Terminal Font Size

Jul 10, 2011

I installed Ubuntu on my Netbook. I like it to use the Terminals. I don't mean the "GUI-Terminal-Emulators", I mean those I can open with "Alt+FX".

Is there a way to permanently change the font size?

Debian Installation :: "permanently" Change The Mount Point?

Feb 11, 2011

I recently installed Squeeze and it was simple and is running great. I have a usb fat32 drive that shares data on 3 partitions with winxp. None are listed in fstab. They all are mounted in /media.2 partitions, Video and Music, are shown in gparted as mounted by their volume labels, which is what I want; eg /media/MUSIC. The DATA volume is mounted by its' uuid. This is how it is displayed on my desktop. The other 2 volumes display the way I want: MUSIC and VIDEO. I have changed the mount point in /media to the label name:/media/DATA but it returns to its' uuid after reboot. How can I change it to display the label name? It works fine, but I have a need to "tidy up" my desktop.

Ubuntu :: Scripting Timezone Changing Process?

Mar 25, 2010

I have worked on redhat/fedora for last 5 yrs but now working on ubuntu as well. I have around 200 ubuntu VMs on which I have to change the timezone.I know I can do that using "dpkg-reconfigure tzdata",But doing it manually on 200 machines is not what I really want to do.Hence I am looking for a way to script this process.On fedora, its simple,change the "ZONE" entry in "/etc/sysconfig/clock" and copy corresponding file from /user/share/zoneinfo to /etc/localtime. Hence I can script is easily.But in ubuntu, with "dpkg-reconfigure tzdata", I don't know how to script it.

Debian :: Setting Date Timezone

May 5, 2015

I'm trying to install Symfony to Debian 7 amd64 LAMP Server and I have some lil problems

It says:
Your system is not ready to run Symfony2 projects
Fix the following mandatory requirements

I already tried to edit php.ini with command :

after that restarted apache /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Server :: How To Get Info About Current Timezone

Jan 13, 2010

I was wondering if there is a way of knowing what is the current set timezone for a linux server. I know that "date +%Z" gives the 3 letter abbreviation of the timezone, but then CST can be interpreted as Central Standard Time (US) and as China Standard Time. I'm looking for a way I could tell what is the real timezone, e.g. "Asia/Jerusalem", "Europe/London", etc. I know that I can set the timezone by symlinking /usr/share/zoneinfo/<Timezone Name> to /etc/localtime, but when I freshly install CentOS and choose my timezone, /etc/localtime isn't a symlink at all so I can't use this info...

Slackware :: 13.37 - Need To Define Date / Timezone In PHP

May 18, 2011

I need to define date.timezone in PHP for an application and I can't seem to figure out how to get Apache (or whatever) to use changes in /etc/httpd/php.ini. For example, I need to set the value of date.timezone to America/Detroit and the latitude and longitude values. I'm assuming that simply stopping and restarting HTTPD ought to make that happen (it doesn't) or rebooting the system should (nope). I must have missed something somewhere.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Natty Installer Hangs At Timezone Select

Aug 11, 2011

I've just decided to downgrade from 64-bit to 32-bit Ubuntu. I created a live USB from the most recent (as of today) 11.04 download, booted up, and selected the option to replace Ubuntu. (Also on my HDD are a Windows partition and a shared partition for documents.)The installer hung at the timezone select page - and, foolishly, I hard-restarted the PC. I can get into 'try Ubuntu' without problems, but every time I try to actually install, it hangs. I can't boot into Windows, since GRUB seems to have been overwritten in my failed partial install. (I can get to a 'grub rescue' prompt, though.)

I suspected it might have something to do with my internet connection - I need to go through a university proxy script, so I'm not sure whether the installer will actually have internet access, even after I've been able to apply proxy settings while running Ubuntu from the USB.

Fedora Installation :: F12 Fails To Install Timezone

Feb 26, 2010

I'm newbie in Linux, but have used Windows and Mac OS X Leopard. Used RedHat in the past, and can't figure this out. I burned Fedora12-x86_64 DVD image on DVD, and start install. Whether I use "linux text" command from boot or just select Install at graphical prompt, everything goes OK until I select hostname. I leave it as "localhost.localdomain" and press Enter. It always give me an error "Can't load class=TimeZoneWindow".

My computer is connected via ethernet to my router, and I had no problems getting online in Windows. Now, in case there are hardware questions:
Intel Pentium 4 with HyperThread enabled and 64bit support (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit runs perfectly in 64bit mode)
2Gb of DDR 400Mhz RAM
I have 2 SATA hard drives with RAID option as Mirror (BIOS settings - RAID or AHCI)
And 128Mb ATI RAdeon X300 series. Pretty simple, but this error aborts my installation.

I tried to do Anaconda updates, but I have no clue about URL where the image is, ex:
linux updates=[URL]
or I tried configuring network:
linux ip= netmask= gateway= dns=,
and no luck. Why does "Can't load class=TimeZoneWindow" appear? Is it a network issue or what? I've seen the screenshot for TimeZone screen in the Installation Guide, but I never get to it.
