Description rh-bugzilla 2002-09-22 09:41:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; T312461)

Description of problem:
When doing a kickstart install of RH73 over an HTTP connection.  My ks.cfg file 
has timezone entererd WITHOUT --utc, but new files are created which have 
date/times 10 hours advanced from the current time.  My h/w clock is set to 
localtime and after the install, anything created has correct timestamps.  My 
timezone is GMT +10.00 hrs -- so there seems to be a problem with the 
install 'thinking' that my hw clock is set to UTC when I have told it (by 
ommission of --utc in timezone entry) that it is NOT.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a ks.cfg file -- include timezone entry, but not the '--utc' option, put 
ks.cfg onto floppy.  Setup install server to install via http method.  Begin 
install.  Look at file timestamps after completion of install.

Additional info:

Tried adjusting time using a shell script to set date -10 hours in %pre section 
with an adjustment of +10 hours in %post section -- did not help at all.

The same problem with Red Hat 8.0 and standard install. Some files are 2 hours
in the future. It seems to be timezone difference - here we have GMT+02. And I
receive during startup the message:
Warning: File `sendmail.cf' has modification time in the future (2002-10-06
18:04:50 > 2002-10-06 17:04:10)
make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
