Description Nick Dimiduk 2002-12-11 09:43:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823

Description of problem:
trying to use the GUI date config tool reports the following error to the terminal:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/redhat-config-date.py", line 35, in ?
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/mainWindow.py", line 181, in __init__
    self.timezonePage = timezone_gui.timezonePage()
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/timezone_gui.py", line 50, in __init__
    self.tz = TimezoneMap(zonetab, self.default, map=path)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/timezone_map_gui.py", line 139, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/timezone_map_gui.py", line 180, in setCurrent
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'tz'

Please let me know if i need to post any more information... this is my first
bug report.  In the time being, could anyone tell me where to set the proper
timezone for my system so that when the system boots it does not set the time to
14 hours ahead?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a terminal window
2. type "/usr/bin/redhat-config-date"
3. enter root password when prompted

Actual Results:  the output pasted above was given

Expected Results:  the date/time GUI should have poped up

Additional info:

This problem did not happen before i upgraded my motherboard to an asus a7v8x. 
Nor did i have the problem with the hardware browser which is mentioned in bug
number 78100.

Oops... to update my last comment: the system time is set at boot after
connecting to a time server.  The resulting system time is set 14 hours ahead of
local time... GMT +9 I believe.  Sorry for the confusion.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 14:51:12 UTC
The contents of the /etc/sysconfig/clock file must have changed.  I don't think
that the motherboard change affected this.  This bug report is a duplicate of
bug 76313, so I'm going to close it as a dupe.  However, you can still respond
to this bug report and I'll try to help you out.

Can you post the contents of your /etc/sysconfig/clock file?  I think what has
happened is that a timezone that redhat-config-date doesn't understand has been
set in the /etc/sysconfig/clock file.
