I feel really stupid asking a basic question, but I can't seem to set the time and date.
As I understand it, the pi has no realt time clock (RTC). Hence, there should be no /dev/rtc and the hwclock command should do nothing. Is this correct?
I am in the US. I edited /etc/timezone to America/New_York (and rebooted several times). When I type date, it still returns the time in the BST timezone.
I am not acting as a NTP server. Should I make any changes to ntp.conf? Is the pi already obtaining time from server X.debian.pool.ntp.org?
