Description of problem:
It seems to me that I shouldn't be asked for my timezone both in
Anaconda and in the firstboot process (in the NTP screen). I am
guessing that you are migrating it into firstboot so I've filed the
bug against Anaconda. Please move it if I've guessed incorrectly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Enter firstboot.
Actual Results: Asked for time zone in Anaconda and then later in
firstboot, in the NTP section.
Expected Results: Only asked once.
Nils -- this is why timezone has ever only been shown in reconfig mode
of firstboot. We should probably keep it as such at least for now.
Long-term, I'd love to migrate this out of anaconda, but there are a
couple of little issues that need to be worked out before that's possible.
Should be doable -- Adrian, green lights for changing firstboot so
that the date module calls s-c-date for Date&NTP and the timezone
module calls s-c-date for TZ only? I can only presume that firstboot
calls the timezone module only for reconfig.
Fixed in firstboot-1.3.27-1 and system-config-date-1.7.10-1.
