file persistence across boots??
I'm trying to set up my first Omega, and have a few questions.
I'm trying to make some standard tweaks, and getting frustrated. I edit /etc/TZ and change the GMT0 to PST8 and date properly reports the correct local time. It does not respond then I set TZ to PST8PDT to indicate that daylight slaving time is used in the area. After a reboot, /etc/TZ contains GMT0, not the value I've set. I suspect I'll have the same issurs with /etc/hosts or /etc/*.
Where are the man pages? I realize they are not on the chip, but are they available online somewhere?
I'm not exactly a newbie... I've been using *NIX since 1985+/-, but these items, and others, yet to be tripped over, are hardware related. I'm familiar with other microcomputers (RPi, CI20, etc.) and I want to understand th Omega, but the documentation is woefully lacking.
The timezone setup is in

@Jim-Brown I too am pretty familiar with Linux over a similar time period. However, I still keep getting thrown by the OpenWrt differences since it is in general a very much cut down version of Linux.
However, I can usually find what i want to know somewhere on the OpenWrt sites. The following are good starting points:
And in particular in relation to your questions about timezones, see information in:
