Description Rory Gleeson 2004-04-29 05:01:25 UTC
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.  

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.

Is this some GUI app within Gnome or KDE? What app do you start exactly?

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.  

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-10-01 12:55:17 UTC
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.

I have a patch to fix this on 


Comment 5 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-29 12:28:19 UTC
Ok, this is fixed upstream, on the stable branch also.
