Description Need Real Name 2006-01-20 15:53:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051215 Epiphany/1.9.4

Description of problem:
When I try to adjust the time zone for the computer, I am prompted for a root password. After I authenticate, select a zime zone, and press OK, the zime zone remains the same.

If I switch root, and launch s-c-t from the console, it works.

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

I experienced the exact same thing with a FC5t2 install
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2006-02-06 10:02:57 EST
In the future, please do mention the package version _always_.

Otherwise, it works for me as expected (changing back from Eastern European
Timezone to Central European Timezone):

[nils@cognac ~]$ date
Mon Feb  6 17:03:58 EET 2006
[nils@cognac ~]$ system-config-date
[nils@cognac ~]$ date
Mon Feb  6 16:05:24 CET 2006

This is system-config-date-1.8.0-1.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2006-02-06 11:30:51 EST
From your example, it looks like you followed the workaround (to run s-c-d from
the command line), rather than running it from the gui (which is broken).

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2006-02-13 08:08:45 EST
I've just verified this without calling system-config-date from the command
line, but from System/Administration/Date & Time and it worked. I'll need to
retry it with all the latest updates applied, though. Stay tuned.
Comment 5 Nils Philippsen 2006-03-06 09:02:52 EST
I've tried to reproduce this with an updated Rawhide system, but everything
worked as expected (without resorting to starting stuff from the command line
and with SELinux Targeted Policy enabled and enforcing). I'll close this as I
can't reproduce the problem.
