Please attach /etc/sysconfig/clock.
Comment 2 Jonas Nyman 2006-03-29 11:26:16 EST
/etc/sysconfig/clock looks like this:

# The ZONE parameter is only evaluated by system-config-date.
# The timezone of the system is defined by the contents of /etc/localtime.

You need to switch your system clock to UTC if you want to automatically switch
between normal and daylight savings time. Otherwise it expects your hardware
clock to be local time (i.e. DST/summer time in summer). The latter is only
useful if you e.g. have a Windows installation via dual boot and Windows adjusts
the HW clock between summer and winter time.
