livecd-creator fails to correctly set timezone
Last modified: 2008-07-02 02:34:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Only US/Eastern timezone is set correctly. When livecd is booted, date displays
as EDT. On inspection, /etc/sysconfig/clock is correct but /etc/localtime is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use timezone America/Denver command in .ks file
4.run date command
date displays EDT
date should display MDT
cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Denver /etc/localtime
Can you try http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/livecd-creator and see if it works better?
Oddly, your URL now points to an incomplete file, but I downloaded the complete
version a few days ago.
There seem to be two or three problems with the fix:
- the reference to "build_Dir" should be "build_dir"
- there seemed to be incorrect indentation, I think on the line that starts
- I am guessing that "except OSError, (errno, msg)" should be "except OSError,
After I fixed the first two listed above, the new livecd-creator worked correctly.
Thanks for testing; I've pushed this + the relevant fixes to an f8-branch in git
and will do an update of livecd-tools for f8-branch later this week or the
beginning of next week
