Description of problem:
redhat-config-date does not update /etc/localtime and /etc/sysconfig/clock
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start KDE as a regular user
2. access redhat-config-date, either from the Start Here item on the desktop or
by right-clicking on the clock applet in the taskbar
3. change timezone
Actual Results: The timezone stayed the same. Rebooting did not help.
Expected Results: The timezone should have been reset to the new values
The files /etc/sysconfig/clock and /etc/localtime were not updated (this may be
a permission problem or a bug in the scripts)
I fixed the problem by manually editing /etc/sysconfig/clock and by copying the
appropriate file in /usr/share/timezone to /etc/localtime
This is obviously beyond the capabilities of the normal user.
