|Perhaps an extension could be made from the original Knoppix /usr/share/zoneinfo, but it would need to be the complement otherwise it would overwrite the new daylight saving time rules which are in DSL.|
- I just tried this by copying over the contents of /usr/share/zoneinfo, /usr/bin/tzselect and /usr/sbin/tzconfig from the knoppix iso.
I tried the boot code tz=Etc/GMT+4 but that didn't work (stays at EDT). Using tzconfig and GMT+4 gave UTC as 4 hours ahead rather than 4 hours behind. Using tzconfig and Moscow (in the same timezone) gave local time as 4 hours ahead and UTC as 8 hours ahead.
There must be another file(s) I'm missing?
