What does 'ls -l /usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/GMT' show?
Comment 2 Tim McConnell 2007-11-20 23:25:06 EST
[root@timmieland ~]# ls -l /usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/GMT
ls: cannot access /usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/GMT: No such file or directory
[root@timmieland ~]# ls -l /usr/share/zoneinfo/etc/GMT
ls: cannot access /usr/share/zoneinfo/etc/GMT: No such file or directory
Comment 3 Tim McConnell 2007-12-06 09:55:27 EST
fixed by renaming zoneinfo to zoneinfo.old and forcing a new install of tzdata
