clock doesn't get set to local time when booting

Description of problem:
I have /usr on it's own partition and my hardware clock is set to the local time.
When booting, rc.sysinit syncs the system clock to the hardware clock before /usr is mounted. hwclock uses the file /etc/localtime to determine what timezone I'm in. This is a symbolic link to somewhere under /usr. Because /usr is not mounted yet the link is broken and UTC is assumed. As a result my clock is off. Copying the file from /usr/... to /etc/localtime fixes the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
red hat 9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description
Actual Results: The clock is off
It shouldn't be a symbolic link, it should be a file. How did it get created in
After some more investigation I found out that it's
redhat-config-time that creates the symlink.
So that's the culprit. Should refile another bug report
Nah, I can just assign it to redhat-config-date.
Looks like a dupe of bug #91228. A fix is available in Rawhide.
