new glibc corrupts time-of-day logging
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:00 EDT
Description of problem:
The new glibc (or something else made available to up2date between
4/5 and 4/12) corrupts time-of-day logging during boot. It appears
timezone information is corrupted from when sshd starts and some
point later in booting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the two times I rebooted since updating
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Have system clock set to use UTC.
1. run up2date to get the latest RPMs.
3. Look at times in /var/log/boot.log. They will jump
forward several hours just after sshd starts. Then,
they will jump back to where they are supposed to be
later in the boot sequence.
Times logged in /var/log/boot.log and /var/log/messages
jump ahead several hours just after sshd starts and jump
back later in the sequence.
Times logged should be reasonably monotonic.
I never saw anything like this and apparently nobody else did. Can you
reproduce this on a freshly installed system without local modifications? And
especially with RHL9?
No reply in more than 5 months. I'm closing this as WORKSFORME.
