Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12397
linuxconf displays a wrong timezone
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 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
The two timezones have identical configurations, and they are also the same as
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 ? :-)

Still there in RC2 (quite annoying)
Still there in rh70
Roswell changed behavior, instead of Europe/Vatican now it says Europe/San
linuxconf has been dropped in hampton, so this not an issue anymore :-)
