Description Rory Gleeson 2004-04-29 01:01:25 EDT
Description of Bug: I've noticed this on the 12-hour clock, not 24-hour clock. I changed the time from 12:xx to 0:xx. The time changed but the PM did not change to AM. Workaround: The only way I could trigger it to correctly update to AM was to then open Preferences, select "show seconds," which changed it to AM and then de-select "show seconds" and close. That did the trick. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 2 Test 3. As an aside, defaulting to 12-hour clock on install rather than 24-hour might be useful, as most users have adopted the 12-hour clock in their daily lives. This might help the above solution, as people could then set the time with a 12-hour clock and then have an option to manually select AM or PM. Thanks for the great product. I can't program code as a way of paying back to the Fedora community, but I'll try to be useful and contribute in any other way that I can find. Rory Gleeson Toronto, Canada

Is this some GUI app within Gnome or KDE? What app do you start exactly? Thanks, Florian La Roche

I've filed enough bug reports in my life to have known better - I didn't give proper info. I was referring to the Gnome panel clock applet. Other than that, I think my initial post describes the issue. Sorry for missing that crucial infl.

Okay, the issue here is that if you are only displaying time with a resolution of minutes and change the time, the clock won't notice it until it expects the minute. i.e. you may have to wait for up to 60 seconds before the clock sees the change.

Ok, this is fixed upstream, on the stable branch also.
