Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2007-11-19 21:50:38 UTC
What timezone did you select on the timezone configuration screen, and what were
the contents of /etc/sysconfig/clock before you made modifications?

Comment 2 Alexey Kuznetsov 2007-11-19 22:05:10 UTC
I setup "Sao paulo/Brazil" Shuld be GTM-3. At boot time i see "utc" time system,
small letters. But i already rewrite content of this file.

Comment 3 Alexey Kuznetsov 2007-11-19 22:13:10 UTC
One moment, probably i can be wrong about local time.... i need more information
about this :(

I try to reproduce it in my VirtualBox, and i can show details here. But i shure
about one things: i set in anaconda installer Sao Paulo city, but when i run my
system-config-date on real system i got some North America city, not my current
location in South America.

Comment 4 Alexey Kuznetsov 2007-11-20 11:25:34 UTC
Content of file /etc/sysconfig/clok set to correct locatioin, and /etc/localtime
correct. Problem with system-config-date, after fresh installation u got wrong
city selected by this utility

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 05:16:43 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
