Description giulioo 2000-06-17 13:48:38 EDT
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? :-)

This is still there in beta2
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-03 04:49:57 EDT
The two timezones have identical configurations, and they are also the same as
Comment 3 giulioo 2000-07-03 18:04:01 EDT
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 7 giulioo 2001-08-10 07:00:32 EDT
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 :-)
