Description stewart 1999-01-07 19:30:15 EST
In previous versions of Red Hat, glibc-2.0 /etc/localtime
was not included in the glibc rpm.  Can it be removed from
glibc-2.1?  In the past /etc/localtime was set after an
install, by some funky app.  Is this behaviour changing,
with rawhide?  I've never actually run the rawhide

It is really anoying from my point of view, when I'll update
glibc a couple of times a week, on a number of machines...
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-14 12:24:59 EST
glibc in Raw Hide now marks /etc/localtime as
	%config(noremove)	/etc/localtime
which should
	1) install /etc/localtime if the file doesn't exi8st
	2) install /etc/localtime.rpmnew if /etc/localtime exists

Please reopen this bug (but change the component to rpm) if the
file /etc/localtime is not being installed as described above.

Never mind, sorry.  I used the wrong version of rpm when building
