Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2009-10-19 16:13:20 UTC
tzdata-2009o-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.

(Despite the release of 1, this update already includes the patch necessary for latest Argentina DST change.)

Petr, it's ok after installing tzdata-2009o-1.fc11.noarch. Thanks

Comment 7 roberto.mtz 2009-10-21 19:04:05 UTC
There is a tzdata RPM for RHEL 4?

Comment 8 Petr Machata 2009-10-22 08:21:53 UTC
The updated package for RHEL 4 is on QA right now.

Comment 9 Jeff Moe (jebba) 2009-10-23 17:29:06 UTC
Looks foo to me still. I didn't change anything with system-config-date.

# rpm -q tzdata

# date
Fri Oct 23 15:26:54 ARST 2009

# ntpdate time.mit.edu
23 Oct 15:27:02 ntpdate[27824]: adjust time server offset 0.011945 sec

I did a yum update too.

Brilliant move by the government to decide this two days before the change, eh?

Comment 10 Petr Machata 2009-10-26 12:56:37 UTC
(In reply to comment #9)
Perhaps your update failed for some reason.  Can you try:
# rpm -V tzdata

If it passes (no output), then:
# tzdata-update 
(which should copy the data file of your timezone over to /etc/localtime)

And see if it helps?

Ah, as (late) follow up, all is OK. Thx.
