Journeying through various timezones requires updates to the system timezone, otherwise NTP will stay synchronised with your "home" timezone.
Most OSs offer some NTP/GeoIP functionality to identify your current timezone by your IP, but running bare systems requires a CLI tool.
tzupdate does this for you. It can be installed from
sudo pip install -U tzupdate
And run like so:
By default, tzupdate will geolocate you, get the timezone for that geolocation, and then attempt to link that timezone to /etc/localtime. You can pass -p to print the detected timezone without linking. You can also pass -a to pass an IP address to use, instead of geolocating you.
This could be performed on a
cron job, but to avoid potential failures in the mapping database is better performed manually.
