Description Jeff Makey 2007-02-16 19:51:46 UTC
The version of Java included with gcc-4.1.1-51.fc5 has daylight time rules that
will be obsolete in the United States on 11 March 2007.  This can result in
displayed times that are off by 1 hour. addresses this issue upstream,
and patching to include their changes to
libjava/classpath/java/util/ may be sufficient to reslove this.

Other versions of Fedora (and probably Red Hat Linux too) are likely to have
this  same problem.

It is not that easy, see

Comment 2 Jeff Makey 2007-03-15 01:39:07 UTC
Thanks for the comprehensive solution.  Now that this has been implemented for
RHEL 3 (bugzilla 227887) perhaps it can be done for Fedora as well.

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2007-07-03 07:24:01 UTC
This is fixed in current FC6 updates (as well as F7 GA), FC5 is no longer
