Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439832
Timezone + Worldmap
Last modified: 2008-04-11 10:40:41 EDT
Description of problem:
When selecting city in "timezone" selection, world map
"zooms in/centers" on the south atlantic ocean instead of
the city ( reykjavik ) being chosen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Reykjavik ( or what the user has chosen )
becomes the center of the world map..
/ignore Best regards Johann B.
( copy and pasted my previously posted findings to the test-list )
Oh yea I forgot to mention I was using the Rawhide 20080328 Snapshot i386 DVD
and Rawhide 20080327 Snapshot i686 Live..
I confirm this happens for me on the snapshot live (both i686 and x86_64) and
also did not happen during install from Beta i686 DVD or Beta x86_64 CDs, when
selecting several cities (none worked correctly).
Hmm, I'm interested in which version of s-c-date wound up in anaconda -- I've
got system-config-date-1.9.26-1.fc9 here and everything works smoothly.
Whichever version was in the tree is what anaconda would have pulled in. Which
looks like it would have been 1.9.26
still broken today as verified during install of i386 2008-04-02 rawhide
Reproduced as well. But I can't get it to happen in system-config-date either.
Zooming before the autozoom was working fine, though
Still not working in rawhide 04.04 live iso..
I also reproduced it with both x86 and x64 20080404 snapshot live (gnome) isos.
The versions on those images are:
As Jeremy said the bug shows up in anaconda, but not in that s-c-d while running
the live cd.

I've just attempted an installation in a virtual guest and could reproduce the
problem (it didn't recenter the map at all instead of moving somewhere random,
but I digress).
My guess is that anaconda doesn't use the "normal" treeview included with the
timezone_map_gui widget but its own dropdown option menu and that this doesn't
send the needed change events to the map or something like that. I'll change the
component to anaconda as I'm not familiar with the modifications that were done
in that regard.
Nils - you are correct. I've updated the timezone code in anaconda to be more
in line with what system-config-date is doing. Sometime after F-9, we should
revisit this whole page and make sure we're tracking s-c-d as closely as possible.

Yes. For the future, we could perhaps target for a search-combo-box thing which
would augment the treeview in the standalone-tool but wouldn't be necessary to
have in Anaconda?
Verified that this is fixed
Great work :) ...
