Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-07-30 19:11:36 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020722

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):

How reproducible:

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
tomorrow.  Deferring.
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-13 14:10:14 EDT
Docs should probably explain how to obtain an equivalent result by modifying the
generated file, then.
Comment 3 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-13 14:45:51 EDT
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
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 12:38:50 EST
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.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 10:29:57 EDT
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.
