/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York is not a timezone file
Last modified: 2008-04-23 12:18:29 EDT
With the clock applet, if I add a location of Portsmouth, NH, Pease Airport, and
then try to set the timezone using the 'set' button that appears on hover, I get
a popup saying "Failed to set the system timezone
/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York is not a timezone file". I have selinux in
permissive mode. Apparently without this set so that a home icon appears, I
don't get weather on the panel.
Hmm, this works correctly here, with
Do you actually have a file /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York ?
raptor> rpm -q gnome-panel libgweather
raptor> rpm -qf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York
raptor> ls -l /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York

/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York: timezone data
FWIW, I'm having the same issue on my x86_64 laptop. Both were clean installed
on Friday from the preview release.
Moving to the right component.
Can you please try the build here:
and tell me if it fixes the problem ?
I installed gnome-panel-libs-126.96.36.199-4.fc9.x86_64 and
gnome-panel-188.8.131.52-4.fc9.x86_64 from koji and got the same error dialog so no,
they do not appear to fix it for me.
P.S. I even deleted the Portsmouth, NH location and re-added it and it still did
not work. Didn't work with Barre, VT, nor San Diego, CA either so it's not just
the America/New York timezone file.
Can you please try if these builds work better ?
Yes, those last builds fix it for me.
