Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142626
Recent update changed time settings, time zone can't be changed in KDE
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
A recent update changed my time settings, and the time zone settings
cannot be changed in KDE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dunno, since it happened durring an update
Steps to Reproduce:
In addition, updating the time using the System Settings-> Date & Time
menu item results in "date" reporting the correct time, but an
incorrect time is shown in the task bar. (in this case, it is +2
hours from the correct time)
It seems to only be the context menu of the taskbar "Adjust date and
time" that has trouble with the timezone.
"Adjust date and time" shows the same time as "date".

I think that rebooting or restarting X finally synced what 'date'
reports and what is shown in the KDE taskbar date/time applet.
There are definately problems using the context menu of the KDE
date/time applet to change timezones.
Forwarding this to kdebase which contains the applet.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently.
