Hi Marius, All,

Subj at today's amd64-HEAD. If I use command "sudo tzsetup" and
choose YES (CMOS clock is set to UTC), the program just quits.
Yea, my clocks are at UTC but I want to get time at local timezone. :-)

I've found a recent commit to tzsetup, is it the cause?

Hm. There is a log message at r322097:
- Make the initial UTC dialog actually work by giving the relevant files
    the necessary treatment and then exit when choosing "Yes" there instead
    of moving on to the time zone menu regardless.

I must misunderstand something.

So my question is: how to set up local time zone if CMOS is set to UTC?

Yeah, I hadn't thought of the case where one would like to set up
a configuration in which the RTC is using UTC but the timezone is

I've used this configuration, well, almost forever. ;-)
As Kevin has already said and my habit is to set a unix machine CMOS
to UTC.

So I've reverted the corresponding part of r322097 for now

Confirmed, tzsetup works as expected (at least for me). Thank you for
quick fix and response.

I don't see an obvious way to give /etc/wall_cmos_clock appropriate
treatment in all 3 relevant cases (UTC/UTC, !UTC/UTC and !UTC/!UTC
regarding RTC/timezone) for all interactive and non-interactive
ways of using tzsetup(8).
