Description of problem:
When running RH8 under KDE, the clock does not display the time in 12 hour
format (AM/PM) regardless of the setting in the KDE Country & Language KDE
Control Module > Time & Dates tab.
Note: This does not happen under Gnome.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to change the clcok to a 12-hour format.
2.Clock stays in 24 hour format.
3.This does not happen under Gnome.
I made a change to /etc/sysconfig/i18n, replacing the text "UTF-8" to "utf8."
Now the clock settings show AM/PM instead of the 24 hour format.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
