I'm using Snapshot-20080321.
The clock (of openmoko-today) ignores /etc/localtime and /etc/timezone and
always displays UTC.
A "date" started from the terminal (or over SSH) outputs correct local time.

(Same behaviour for UTC=yes and UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS.)

  • Summary changed from timezone is ignored to timezones missing

Some additional information and correction (now Snapshot-20080327, I think it's
no difference between this and my formerly used snapshot):

My timezone is Europe/Berlin? and this doesn't work with openmoko-today (UTC is
/etc/localtime was copied from my local machine.
If I delete /etc/timezone, the correct time is displayed. The same if I change
/etc/timezone to Europe/Paris?, leaving /etc/localtime unchanged.

So I think, only my timezone Europe/Berlin? (and possibly many others) are missing.

Timezones aren't really guaranteed to work if you start copying files from a
different machine - You ought to set the time-zone on the device
(openmoko-worldclock lets you, although this application is very much unfinished
and the functionality ought to be included in a generic settings app).
