How do I set timezone on PowerPMAC?

Our Power PMAC boots up in the Pacific (Los Angeles) time zone. We tried changing /etc/timezone, but that had no effect. We also tried running /usr/bin/tzselect, but that gives the following errors: [color=#FF0000] /usr/bin/tzselect: line 53: /usr/share/zoneinfo/iso3166.tab: No such file or directory /usr/bin/tzselect: time zone files are not set up correctly [/color] What method should we use in order to set the timezone?

The solution to changing the timezone under Debian Linux is to install the tzdata using: env http_proxy=http://user:pass@server:port apt-get update env http_proxy=http://user:pass@server:port apt-get install tzdata where user=username, pass=password, server=proxy server, and port=proxy port. Then run: dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and select your geographical region and timezone. Be sure to use a terminal session that supports escape sequences. When you are done, the only files that are changed/created in /etc are: /etc/timezone /etc/localtime These need to be copied to your /.readonly directory. I also used rsync to sync up the /var directory with /.readonly/var, but it is probably not necessary. There were some apt lists that were new after the install. You will also have the necessary files installed in /usr/share/zoneinfo.
