Description Robert Dowling 2007-02-05 22:15:02 UTC
Description of problem:

Installing FC7test1 over a good FC6 (wipe everything).
System hardware clock was already using [x] UTC and my time zone (PST=+8)
Anaconda prompts me with correct time for my timezone 14:02 PST and
check box on UTC is already checked.  I accept both defaults.

Rebooting, clock now shows 06:02 PST.
date shows 06:02 PST
date -u shows 14:02 UTC

I can fix it by just setting the clock again. 
Rebooting does not break it again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC7 over FC6 with system clock already UTC and a time zone
2. Choose to keep system clock UTC and have a non-zero time zone

Moving to 'devel' as discussed on

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-11-30 05:23:13 UTC
Is this still a problem with F8?

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:02:17 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
