    Question Knoppix 8.1 Hard drive Installation

    I Installed Knoppix 8.1 on Hard drive.
    There is an issue with the Time setting.

    Here is what I found out so far:

    a) The BIOS of my MSI motherboard is set to universal time UTC.

    b) In /etc/adjtime I find
    '0.000000 1177000000 0.000000
    1177000000
    UTC'

    c) After setting my time zone via ---> Preferences ---> Date and Time to 'America/Vancouver
    I checked /etc/timezone and found the right entry - America/Vancouver - and the right time appears in the panel.


    After each restart/reboot of the computer, /etc/timezone is overwritten with 'localtime'
    and I have to set the timezone new as I did before.

    What can I do to have the /etc/timezone entry permanent?

    I have a multi system configuration - Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10.
    I installed Knoppix and I have to select the system I want to use from a grub.conf. menu which comes up after start.
    Where do I have the access to enter the cheat code for Knoppix?

    Here is the entry for Knoppix boot in my grub.cfg. Where would I have to enter the code 'tz-America/Vancouver?

    PHP Code:
    menuentry 'Debian GNU/Linux (buster/sid) (on /dev/sdc1)' --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'osprober-gnulinux-simple-d3e1c0de-0517-45d5-b1a8-518122a550b8' {
        
    insmod part_msdos
        insmod reiserfs
        set root
    ='hd2,msdos1'
        
    if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint xy ]; then
          search 
    --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd2,msdos1 --hint-efi=hd2,msdos1 --hint-baremetal=ahci2,msdos1  d3e1c0de-0517-45d5-b1a8-518122a550b8
        
    else
          
    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root d3e1c0de-0517-45d5-b1a8-518122a550b8
        fi

    linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc1 rootwait lang= apm=power-off nomce libata.force=noncq tz=localtime
    I guess this would be the line where I have to replace tz=localtime to ---> tz=America/Vancouver ?

    Welcome to micro- (or was it nano-?) remastering of Knoppix
    You can do quite a few adaptations by editing the kernel parameters. For example, doing multi-booting in a more orderly fashion.
