Description GO 2005-04-01 06:41:56 EST
Description of problem:

Just moved to the UK and would like to adjust my time from EST to GMT but this
doesn't seem to work in FC3.

Whether I launch system-config-date as me from the menu or from a shell as root
it takes forever to come up, i.e. as much as 10 min.  When I do it with me as
the user, the PAM dialog comes up right away so it's something after that.  When
it eventually does come up I select the Europe/London timezone and new time but
it doesn't take.  There's no update to the clock in the panel and when I
re-invoke this config tool the setting was not applied.  I'd like to think it's
as simple as pressing the right Apply/Ok button but I don't think that's it -
plus the delay for the launch of the tool is very suspicious.

What gives?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I'm on the latest 770 kernel and I'm using the Red Hat packaged 1.7.13 version
of the system-config-date rpm.

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
- see above
Actual results:
- no change at all

Expected results:
- new timezone and a time 6 hrs later (actually 7 for now) with the
configuration retained the next time I invoke the tool

This should work with current system-config-date versions.
