Package: initscripts
Version: 2.86.ds1-38.1
Severity: normal


I think I must report this bug to the package initscripts but I'm not sure...

My laptop is under SID. I have dual boot with windows. So my BIOS date is set to localtime (bad...). In /etc/dafault/rcS I have UTC=no. With tzdata and so tzselect I have choosen "Europe/Paris". When I execute 'date', or 'date -u' or 'dpkg-reconfigure tzdata' I have the good localtime and the good UTC time. All my clocks under E1è or GNOME give me the good time...So ok...but For these 3 mount :
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

I get the localtime + 2 hours...
When I type mount I get that :
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda4 on /donnees type ext3 (rw)
nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw)

I test all the mount points, and all others that these three are in good time...

So If you have an idea to fix it (without change my BIOS time...)...

Thx for your great work!
