Re: [nslu2-linux] Re: DST change
On V2.3R29-uNSLUng-5.5-beta, with the addition of the diversion script rc.rstimezone described in http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/FixTheClockUsingAdjtimexAndNtpclient , the fix does not survive a reboot.
My guess is that the line "/usr/sbin/Set_TimeZone" is restoring the linksys configuration. Is it better to fix this script by commenting out this line, change this script to establish a hard coded "TZ=America/Los_Angeles" or write another script that includes your fix on startup?

More than two people have tested the procedure and it is working.
