Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2003-02-11 03:09:12 UTC
Description of problem:

Here was what my /etc/sysconfig/clock had because of redhat-config-date:

redhat-config-date doesn't recognize UTC=1 though... So it 



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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/clock to this:
ZONE="America/New_York"
UTC=true
ARC=0
2.
run redhat-config-date (Use UTC should be checked) and then just click "OK"
3.
/etc/sysconfig/clock is now:
ZONE="America/New_York"
UTC=1
ARC=0
4. run redhat-config-date again and its no longer checked because
redhat-config-date doesn't recognize the value it set itself (UTC=1).

    
Actual results:
redhat-config-date sets UTC=1 into /etc/sysconfig/clock but doesn't recognize it.

Expected results:

redhat-config-date sets it to UTC=true


Additional info:
Also note that the time applet in Gnome 2 on RH8.0 becomes incorrect if you
enable UTC in its prefs. Don't know if that's related.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-02-11 17:05:59 UTC
The latest redhat-config-date in Rawhide should handle the UTC and ARC fields
correctly.  This is basically a duplicate of bug #72149
