Description steve roush 2008-05-08 02:41:47 UTC
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
"US/Eastern" version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
013.1.fc8.i386

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use timezone America/Denver command in .ks file
2.build livecd
3.boot
4.run date command
  
Actual results:
date displays EDT

Expected results:
date should display MDT

Additional info:
Workaround is:
%post
cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Denver /etc/localtime

Can you try http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/livecd-creator and see if it works better?

Comment 2 steve roush 2008-06-04 03:14:37 UTC
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
"except OSError"
- I am guessing that "except OSError, (errno, msg)" should be "except OSError,
(err, msg)"

After I fixed the first two listed above, the new livecd-creator worked correctly.
