dcron 2.2 and Daylight Savings Time

Post by Christopher Neufe » Thu, 16 Apr 1998 04:00:00

   I just noticed that my crond didn't make the switch to DST along with
the rest of the machine. I've downloaded the 2.3.3 sources, but there's
no mention in the CHANGES file of a fix for this, and the bug reporting
address doesn't resolve. Those of you with cron jobs might want to check
that the daemon is running properly.

1. Daylight Savings time, system time, hardware time....

I am sure that this has been rehashed a bunch of times, but I can't seem
to get it through my thick  skull...

I have a RedHat 6.0 system, 2.2.13 kernel.  I need to configure the darn
thing to keep the right time.  I can't seem to correctly configure the
hardware clock so that it correctly deals with DST.

I tried setting it to UTC using RedHat's tools, but it had no effect.
The time zone information must be correct, since the calendar displays
EDT, but the hardware clock and the system clock are now exactly
backwards.....  The hardware clock is one hour ahead of the system

Wed Apr 19 14:48:26 2000  -0.940635 seconds

What files do I need to change (by hand, not through possibly broken GUI
tools) to make this right?
