Hi all,

BTW: /etc/default/init would only get read again after a reboot.
thus to test the TZ variables, do something like:
# TZ=European/Timezone date
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Replaced with the correct timezone (You might 
need to zic European or something equivalent)

The correct timezone for Germany appears to be CET. One further 
important thing to note is that /etc/default/init gets read during 
system boot only.

Thanks a lot,
