Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438899
intlclock doesn't handle NTP, timezone is somewhat odd
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:13:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Right now, we have both system-config-date and intlclock in the default desktop
install. That's bad.
The two things in s-c-date that are missing in intlclock:
- NTP support
- Timezone isn't as obvious - it's not referenced under the 'Adjust Date and
With those addressed (in some way), we can remove s-c-date from the default
install. Yay for less duplication!
(We could pre-emptively remove s-c-date, I suppose.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Of course, anaconda's timezone widgets are just used straight from
system-config-date. So removing it would be bad from that point of view.
Its not bad bad, just a little bit of redundancy.
But I agree that it would be good if we could get to the point where s-c-d is
From my perspective, NTP should just be on by default, and should be handled by
Bill, for the timezone, what would you want to do in the "Time settings" dialog
? I could add some text explaining that you should use the main ui to select a
different timezone. I'm also talking to geoclue upstream to get automatic
I forgot, there's also system-clock-is-UTC-or-localtime that s-c-d handles.
Which is a pain to try and expose, but that's Windows breaking things for you.
I wonder if a 'Change timezone...' button that pops the location dialog would
work? Of course, this is all 2.24, things at this point.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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.
