Description giulioo 2000-06-17 17:48:38 UTC
During the text/expert install I selected Europe/Rome timezone, so that 
now I have ZONE="Europe/Rome" (that is CET/CEST) in /etc/sysconfig/clock.

Linuxconf (text version, don't know the gui), date and time, shows 
Europe/Vatican. Maybe linuxconf is catholic? :-)

Comment 1 giulioo 2000-06-27 17:05:45 UTC
This is still there in beta2

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-03 08:49:57 UTC
The two timezones have identical configurations, and they are also the same as

Comment 3 giulioo 2000-07-03 22:04:01 UTC
So what? :)
If you provide 3 equal zoneinfo files with different names you should also take 
the time to use them consistently, otherwise drop Vatican and SanMarino.

md5sum|sort of those files shows that this is not the only case, so maybe 
others have the same problem too?

Would you like US/Some_weird_place_in_the_east instead of US/EDT ? :-)

Comment 6 giulioo 2000-12-06 11:15:16 UTC
Still there in rh70

Comment 7 giulioo 2001-08-10 11:00:32 UTC
Roswell changed behavior, instead of Europe/Vatican now it says Europe/San 
Still wrong.

linuxconf has been dropped in hampton, so this not an issue anymore :-)
