I recently got an SGI O2 workstation running IRIX 6.3 a couple of months ago, and I noticed that, when using FTP, the filesystem creation/modified date and timestamps are 3-4 hours ahead.
Sure enough, I check "date" in the shell, and it returns "PST8PDT", but in /etc/TIMEZONE, it was already set to TZ=EST5EDT (also tried TZ=:EST5EDT).
Here's what I've tried:
- Setting the /etc/TIMEZONE file to reflect the new timezone, and nothing
- Changed /etc/.profile to force the change to the TZ environment variable every time I open the shell.
- Made changes to the /etc/cshrc file also.
Albeit doing all of this, this yielded no results. Filesystem dates are inaccurate (given I make new entries, creating files in a directory and so forth) and are still 3-4 hours ahead of the actual time. I have xntpd on it, which keeps track of the time sufficiently, but this change still did not do the trick.
After hours of Googling this particular issue, nothing seems to have worked.
Any help on this is *greatly* appreciated.
