Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated tzdata package adds daylight savings rule
enhancements
Advisory ID: FLEA:173091-2
Issue date: 2006-03-23
Product: Fedora Core
Keywords: Enhancement
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

An updated tzdata package that adds daylight savings rule enhancements
for various countries is now available.

The tzdata package contains data files with rules for various timezones
around the world.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386
Fedora Core 3 - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

This update adjusts timezone files for countries where daylight savings
rules have recently changed or are going to change in the near future.

Users in those countries should upgrade to these updated packages
and rerun redhat-config-date (or system-config-date in FC2) to update
the local timezone in /etc/localtime.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
