Description of problem:
It is not possible to choose the "timezone" UTC with the graphical interface.
You have to manually copy /usr/share/zoneinfo/UTC to /etc/localtime instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The same problem exists also with the installation program - I don't know how
they are interconnected.
The system-config-date package for FC5 contains a fix, as soon as it is released
I plan to backport that version.
I've backported 1.8.2 for FC4, it should hit updates-testing shortly. Please
verify that your issue is fixed with this update and report back. Thanks!
Just confirming that in the current releases F7 and F8: the selection of UTC as
the time zone is possible.
