Having the wrong time zone will not cause any such problems. Timestamps on files are stored in UTC and only converted to local time for display. So you can change time zone at any time, and different users on the system can even have different time zones, and the results are always correct.piguy wrote:I'd like to know how I set the correct time zone because I believe if it is wrong, you will have trouble connecting to different download servers. (apart from having the wrong timestamps on saved files etc.) Thanks in advance for any help.
It wont ask you questions at this point - this is just copying the image to the SD card, not setting it up, which is done when you run it in the pi.piguy wrote:All right, I made a mistake. I didn't set a time zone because there isn't an opportunity to do so.
I downloaded the "squeezy" os and extracted it to the home folder of my laptop with the sd card inserted.
Then I ran dd bs=1M if=~/debian6-19-04-2012.img of=/dev/mmcblk0. As per the instructions.
There's no point at which you are asked for the time zone or keyboard layout.
