SuSE 9.3 and 2007 DST

Link: ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/

It bugged me that my Red Hat Linux 7.3 machine would correctly transition into DST next year, but my SuSE 9.3 machine wouldn't. And, I have all the current patches for both machines (the RH7.3 machine being terminal EOL at the end of this year).

I don't want to upgrade the machine, because other than this....it is working fine, and the last time I upgraded it caused major disruption to my home network. And, it makes it rather hard to recover without network access.

Anyways, as I was googling around....looking for how to 'build' the timezone change. I concluded that I needed to create input files and use 'zic'. Too bad there isn't an 'unzic'... So, what I found was a location to get the 'zic' input files.

Now takes care of that issue with box, so there'll be no worries or need to disrupt things. Now I wonder how zoneinfo files will get updated on my ReplayTVs? :?:

Well, turns out this didn’t work quite right.

Couldn’t figure out why ‘box’ seemed off from all my other machines by 40 seconds. Turns out the zoneinfo files that I had compiled using the download tzdata with zic, where the cause.

Moving /etc/localtime in and out I could see that there was an offset for UTC and ‘localtime’.

I restored back to the old timezone data, but now DST will be wrong….unless Novell releases a proper patch (or I come across code that will make things right….)

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
