UTC or LOCAL when installing Debian

Postby nadebula1984 » 2019-12-01 16:19

I installed Debian testing using Debian Installer weekly build. There was an existing Windows installation on another hard disk. The installer detected it and automatically configured its boot option.

When I booted into newly installed Debian, I found that the time was different from Windows, where I already set to treating hardware time as UTC and disabling internet time service. After browsing Debian wiki, I returned to Debian and checked /etc/adjtime. Then I found that the configuration file was set to LOCAL. Was this simply because any existing Windows installation was detected during installation? I've never seen this before.
