Hi all,

I am looking for a way to get my FreeBSD 5.3 box to show my local time as BST 
(British Summer Time) as apposed to GMT.

I have checked and double-checked the timezone and have set this to Europe/London.
However I think I need to do something with the locale. Hunting around led me 
to the /etc/login.conf and the concept of classes but can't understand or 
follow the documentation to get it set up correctly.
Check that /etc/localtime exists and is the same as the London timezone file:

$ diff /etc/localtime /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London

should produce no output.

Also check that you do not have a TZ variable set as that will affect what date shows you.

I've never had to do anything login class related to make this work.

There may be other things...
