Hi all,

I am looking for a way to get my FreeBSD 5.3 box to show my local time as BST (British Summer Time) as apposed to GMT.

I have checked and double-checked the timezone and have set this to Europe/London. 

However I think I need to do something with the locale. Hunting around led me to the /etc/login.conf and the concept of classes but can't understand or follow the documentation to get it set up correctly.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Philip Radford.
