Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 359391
Time is now wrong in Gnome
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:33:34 EDT
Description of problem:
As of Sunday morning (10/28/2007) I noticed the time was behind 1 hour as
reported by the clock in the GUI (Gnome). The command line time is fine. The
time on both were fine before Sunday. I assume something is wrong with the DST
settings. A check using zdump shows this:
CST6CDT Sun Mar 11 07:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 01:59:59 2007 CST isdst=0
CST6CDT Sun Mar 11 08:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 03:00:00 2007 CDT isdst=1
CST6CDT Sun Nov 4 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:59:59 2007 CDT isdst=1
CST6CDT Sun Nov 4 07:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:00:00 2007 CST isdst=0
TZ env var is: CST6CDT
I am using the default NTPD time server.
I believe UTC comes up checked by default on the install. If so that is what I used.
I have looked at everything I could think of and just cannot figure out why my
systems are doing this (2 Fedora 7 and 1 RHEL5 Server). I just re-installed one
of my systems again with F7 and also applied every update. Problem is still there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All three systems are currently showing the wrong time in the GUI.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above.
Per e-mail communication, reporter doesn't observe the problem anymore. Closing.
