Setting timezone in Redhat/Triteal's CDE

Setting timezone in Redhat/Triteal's CDE

Post by Jeffrey C. De » Mon, 23 Feb 1998 04:00:00



I've just finished installing Redhat 5, along with their Triteal CDE package.
Like every good Unixen, I keep my system clock set to UTC, relying upon the
proper handling of the TZ variable to adjust to the proper local time.

I set the timezone correctly during installation, and /etc/localtime is
linked to the proper entry.

I do have TZ set properly in ~/.dtprofile (CDE by default does _not_ run
!/.profile!)

When I bring up the timezone dialog in the CDE calendar utility, I can see
that it recognizes that I am in CST6CDT.  The toolbar clock, on the other
hand, displays UCT, regardless.

Does anybody know what I have to do to get that clock to display the correct
timezone?

 
 
 

1. TriTeal CDE 4.2 won't work under Redhat 5.0

I can't get TriTeal CDE 4.2 to work under RedHat 5.0. It worked fine under
RedHat 4.1. Now, I get the TriTeal CDE startup screen and then that's it!

I've applied the libc5 patch that RedHat has plus the update to ld. I've
applied all other patches as well (dtconfg and dtlp) but to no avail.

When I look in my ~/.dt/startlog, this is what I see:

Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
get_myaddress: socket: Invalid argument

I've setup the hosts file as per the RedHat errata web site as well as the
host.conf and /etc/sysconfig/network files. But, it still won't work!

I guess other people have gotten it to work, but for me, it's a no go.

Here's my files:

host.conf:
    order hosts,bind multi on

ifcfg-lo:
    DEVICE=lo
    IPADDR=127.0.0.1
    NETMASK=255.0.0.0
    NETWORK=127.0.0.0
    BROADCAST=127.255.255.255
    ONBOOT=yes
    BOOTPROTO=none

first line of hosts:

127.0.0.1       localhost               localhost.netexp.net

Again, I >have< applied the TEDlibc5 fix rpm and the ld rpm as well.

If anyone has any ideas on how to get this to work, I'd appreciate it
very much.

I CAN start it up with just dtterm and no window manager. However, once I
try to fire off dtwm or /usr/dt/bin/Xsession, it just hangs and then I get
the errors in my ~/.dt/startlog file as described earlier in this post.

Thanks!
