Description of problem:
All Fedora computers changed to ARST (Argentina Summer Time) but unfortunately, 2 days before the change our president decided that we are not going to change to summer time this year. ARST is -2, we have to remove ARST from the tzdata in order to be on ART -3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora
2. Configure Argentina zone
[matias@mirror ~]$ date
Mon Oct 19 12:17:13 ARST 2009
Mon Oct 19 11:17:13 ART 2009
DST won't be applicable to any region of the country
Buenos_Aires Cordoba Mendoza San_Juan Ushuaia
Catamarca Jujuy Rio_Gallegos San_Luis
ComodRivadavia La_Rioja Salta Tucuman
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
tzdata-2009o-1.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
There is a tzdata RPM for RHEL 4?
The updated package for RHEL 4 is on QA right now.
Looks foo to me still. I didn't change anything with system-config-date.
# rpm -q tzdata
Fri Oct 23 15:26:54 ARST 2009
# ntpdate time.mit.edu
23 Oct 15:27:02 ntpdate: adjust time server 220.127.116.11 offset 0.011945 sec
I did a yum update too.
Brilliant move by the government to decide this two days before the change, eh?
(In reply to comment #9)
Perhaps your update failed for some reason. Can you try:
# rpm -V tzdata
If it passes (no output), then:
(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.
