Description of problem:
The Time Zone selection does not allow one to choose to have the local clock on UTC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Erhm... Start redhat-config-kickstart
2.Browse all menus looking for an option to mark
Actual Results: No such option is found, so the kickstart file has to be
tweaked by hand.
Expected Results: I expected this option to be present.
Too late to add for this release. Screenshots are going to taken today or
Docs should probably explain how to obtain an equivalent result by modifying the
generated file, then.
FWIW, the magic spell in the kickstart configuration file to indicate the
hardware clock is in UTC, rather than local time, is to add --utc to the
`timezone' line, for example:
timezone --utc America/Sao_Paulo
Should be fixed in cvs. I have added a checkbox that allows the user to turn
UTC on and off. redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.5-3 should fix the problem.
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time. I am closing these as Rawhide now. If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
Confirmed fixed in Fedora Core test3. Sorry about the log delay.
