A couple of questions.  

1) Was this an upgrade from a previous release?

2) What does your /etc/sysconfig/clock file look like?
Comment 2 adam allen 2002-09-16 12:03:54 EDT
Version: redhat-config-date-1.5.2-9
Fresh install of null, with all relevant up2date applied the day the bug was

On a seperate install of null on another machine- without any updates
redhat-config-date worked. After updated redhat-config-date stopped working.
Dropping down to redhat-config-date-1.5.1-2 and the utility launches without any

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-10-14 22:52:51 EDT
Um, how did you get ZONE="GB" in /etc/sysconfig/clock?  That is not a valid
timezone according to /usr/share/zoneinfo/zone.tab.  I think "Europe/London" is
what you're looking for.

However, redhat-config-date should not crash on an invalid timezone.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-10-22 15:29:37 EDT
This should be fixed with redhat-config-date-1.5.3-1 which should apprear in
Rawhide in the next day or so.  If this doesn't fix the problem, please reopen
this bug report.
