Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-03 17:12:53 UTC
When I try to adjust the timezone in system-config-date and click [OK], it just
pops up an NTP dialog and then goes back to the dialog.  If I disable NTP,
clicking the [OK] button does nothing.

If I close the window with the [X] window manager button then my changes get
dropped, so there is no way right now to change my timezone using

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-03 19:48:03 UTC
I ran it again from a terminal and got this output when I clicked [OK]:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-date/", line 78, in ok_clicked
    self.apply ()
  File "/usr/share/system-config-date/", line 191, in apply
    self.timezoneBackend.writeConfig(timezone, utc, arc)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-date/", line 52, in
    shutil.copyfile(fromFile, "/etc/localtime")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 46, in copyfile
    fsrc = open(src, 'rb')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New

creating a symlink from New_York in that directory to a New\ York made
everything start working.
