Description of Problem: If the ZONE variable in /etc/sysconfig/clock is
set to a valid
timezone in /usr/share/zoneinfo that is NOT also in
ksconfig crashes with an ugly Python error.
How Reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set ZONE="US/Central" in /etc/sysconfig/clock
2. Run ksconfig.
If you set ZONE="America/Chicago", ksconfig magically works again.
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/share/ksconfig/ksconfig.py", line 387, in ?
ksconfig should run normally, no matter what value is in
Preferably, there should be a way to set the timezone value in ksconfig.
It's not clear to me that zone.tab is meant to list ALL valid timezones on
the system. If
it is, then we have a bug in glibc-common as well, and possibly anaconda.
Fixed in cvs. It's also available in the Roswell public beta.
