I don't think this has anything to do with the hardware clock.
Set the hardware clock to utc time and have the operating system set
time to the local timezone.
I think Dieter was referring to a setting you can adjust in some
Linux distributions. You can either let the hardware clock run as
UTC or local time. This can avoid messing up the time setting of
another OS which might be started alternatively from another
partition and assumes the hardware clock runs in the local timezone.
Anyway it boils down to take care of the time zone depending on
your system's need.
Every OS out there today runs its system clock in UTC and provides separate
APIs for returning system time vs local time. Anyone having this sort of
problem simply has a misconfigured OS.
