Setting the timezone in FreeBSD

Wed May 23 19:59:49 BST 2007

Since moving back to the UK I wanted to set my system clock to the correct timezone (ie not Brisbane time). As the last time I had done this was eight months ago, I had forgotten how to do it. A Google search revealed a method that I had not used before but seems to have worked:

cd /etc/
sudo cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London localtime
sudo adjkerntz -a
