Description SEKINE Tatsuo 2003-04-08 06:48:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.1) Gecko/20021030 for
VineLinux 0vl6

Description of problem:
Postfix is configured to use chroot jail by default rpm settings.
Then zoneinfo for chroot jail is located at 
"/var/spool/postfix/etc/localtime".

When redhat-config-date(redhat-config-time/timeconfig) chage
zoneinfo, it update only /etc/localtime.

When postfix is installed in system-install time,
/etc/localtime is for "EST".
Then, the zoneinfo for chrooted postfix is set as "EST".
The change of system-wide zoneinfo do NOT influence postfix,
which is run at first reboot time and sys-unconfig(1)ed.

Please update /var/spool/postfix/etc/localtime by
redhat-config-date also.
I don't know what packages use chroot jail feature except postfix.
If any other package which use chroot jail exist,
update it's (chroot jail)/etc/localtime too.




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see /usr/share/redhat-config-date/timezoneBackend.py
2.
3.
    

Additional info:

When postfix is installed in system-install time,
/etc/localtime is for "EST".
Then, the zoneinfo for chrooted postfix is set as "EST" always.
The change of system-wide zoneinfo do NOT influence postfix.

This should be implemented in redhat-config-date-1.5.13-1.  Thanks for your report.
