Chapter 10. Time Zone Selection

10.1. Selecting a Time Zone
10.2. Universal Co-ordinated Time (UTC)
This screen allows you to specify the correct time zone for the location of your computer. Specify a time zone even if you plan to use NTP (Network Time Protocol) to maintain the accuracy of the system clock.

10.1. Selecting a Time Zone

Fedora displays on the screen two methods for selecting the time zone. To select a time zone using the map, first place your mouse pointer over your region on the map. Click once to magnify that region on the map. Next, select the yellow dot that represents the city nearest to your location. Once you select a dot, it becomes a red X to indicate your selection.
To select a time zone using the list, select the name of the city nearest to your location. The cities are listed in alphabetical order.
