kernel is 2.6.0-0.test8.1.66.  Didn't try with others, but will be happy to do so.

May need to do the 'set system clock to GMT' thing... Give it a try with the FC1
kernel instead of that 2.6 monstrosity :)
Comment 2 Tom Wood 2003-10-28 14:36:17 EST
But I *like* the monstrosity! ;-)  After all, it's Halloween!
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2004-08-20 15:43:06 EDT
Worked fine for me just now. This is with the FC3 devel tree. I'm
pretty sure I don't have the hw clock set to UTC. I'm assuming it's
something weird with your system or it got fixed since.
