Description Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-04-09 15:03:22 UTC
Hi I would like to report that none of my RedHat 5.2 (intel,Sparc, alpha) machines did the correct time change last week. It appears that there is a some problem with this version of RH will not make the time adjustment. Now this is not a problem if the linux box is being used as a desk top client but there is a real big problem if the computer is "the" time master. I know how to RDATE, and XNTPD the machines but I expect that RH Linux should work just as well as my SunOS, Solaris, Auspex, and SGI unix machines with respect to the time change.

Cristian, don't you need your hardware clock set to UTC in order for the timezone change to work? I had no problems with my computer at work or at home.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-04-09 23:53:59 UTC
Preston is correct. I can vouch for all my machines tracking the time change correctly, and they are all set to UTC in the CMOS and /etc/sysconfig/clock has UTC=true Richard, could you please report the contents of your /etc/sysconfig/clock file and the output of the following commands? Thanks! date hwclock --show
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-04-12 17:04:59 UTC
That is correct, you need your machine's hardware clock set to UTC for this to happen.
