Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 103152
[GLIBC AS2.1] Zoneinfo data for Europe/Tallinn is incorrect.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Description of problem:
The file /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Tallinn contains out-of-date information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: Wed Aug 27 08:52:20 EET 2003
EET indicates Estonian Standard Time.
Expected results: Wed Aug 27 09:52:20 EEST 2003
EEST indicates Estonian Summer Time.
This problem was previously reported for RHL 7.2 (bug 76549).
This bug was caused by a change in Estonian law to start using Daylight Time
again. We have been using Daylight Time for two summers now, but updates to
glibc-common continue to distribute bad data.
Red Hat Linux versions 7.3 through 9 work correctly.
This is fixed in RHEL3/Rawhide by splitting tzdata package from glibc-common
(with separate sources), so that erratas to tzdata can be released independently
from glibc erratas.
For RHAS2.1 you can either temporarily copy the appropriate zoneinfo file
from newer distributions, or wait for next glibc rpms, which probably won't
happen for a few months unless some severe bug is discovered.
This is acceptable. We've been using the zoneinfo file from a newer
distribution, but I wanted to make sure that future updates of glibc are correct
for RHAS2.1. Feel free to close this bug if future updates are handled.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.2.4-32.9.
Exists as a errata-candidate, adding to U3 blocker bug list.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
