Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72396
firstboot thinks the time is when firstboot started, even if I start filling it in a day later
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:56:22 EDT
GUI install of (null): personal desktop. Performed by someone else, not
me, left at firstboot for me to set up as I pleased. I think this may be
a fairly common scenario.
38 hours later, I recall this. it's sitting on the first page. go to
next page, time setup. firstboot thinks it's still 38 hours ago in the
form fields when I can tweak the date and time, and is showing the real time
just above that. Exceedingly perplexing to se 15:10:31 (etc) ticking on and
the forms containing 1 (why not 01 for 24 hours clock, btw?) for hour, 14
for minutes, etc.
I think it should look for the time when the time screen is selected, not
when firstboot starts, if this is possible.
There are a few issues here.
1) I don't know of a way for GTK SpinButtons to format numbers with a leading
zero like "01", "02", and so on. Perhaps there is a way, but I couldn't figure
it out after a few minutes.
2) Probably the correct way to fix this problem is to have a proper Gtk clock
widget like Windows and MacOS have, but that's not going to happen for this release.
Ok, I've changed it to update the time in the entry widgets every time the date
screen is entered. This should fix things.
QA, please verify with redhat-config-date-1.5.2-8 and firstboot-1.0.1-5.
Resolving as 'Currentrelease'. Please reopen if you still see the problem in RHL 9.
