Several Traffic Rules in the Firewall are configured to prevent my child from using a specific computer during certain times. This has worked perfectly for months, but after the time change due to DST it appears this is occurring an hour later. I had to disable that rule temporarily until I figure out what's going on.
This should be straightforward for someone familiar with this but I'm not! If it helps, I'm using the America/Chicago timezone.
The only other option in Luci is to use UTC, but that's not going to compensate for DST.
I did find that post earlier, but there doesn't seem to be any real solution other than rebooting, if I'm interpreting this correctly. Does it actually have to be rebooted any time DST goes into or out of effect?
For Gargoyle, we have a utility which runs a similar process to the new hwclock -u --systz. We run this on a cron job every 10 minutes to ensure that DST changes are caught and kerneltz is updated.
I'm surprised a similar mechanism isn't in OpenWrt?
DST changes happen 2 times per year at pre-determined times. Any specific reason why you set it to run on every day during the whole year? It should be enough to run for a few days in March/April and October/November so that the possible annual variation in the exact date would be taken care of.
(and naturally the "every 10 minutes" for Gargoyle sounds really weird if DST change is the reason )

Press CTRL-D on the second line for EOT
i guess you just have to remember to reinstall atd after an update, if any before nov 7
can also use command atq to see what is currently scheduled or go to /tmp/spool/cron/atjobs
