Not a question, but one answer for anyone else caught by the change to the end of Daylight Saving Time in Australia a few hours ago, who hadn't updated their /usr/share/zoneinfo/ data since, um, Feb 21st or so.
Yes, I was surprised to notice the clock move back an hour tonight, on my 4.5-R laptop and a (yep!) 2.2.6 system I look after, not having heard any usual reminders on TV/radio about DST changes. Some googling found: http://wpram.com/log/2006/03/04/commonwealth-games-daylight-saving/ which clear procedure I followed to the letter. All better now. Step 6 "FreeBSD users only: copy /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Sydney to /etc/localtime" wasn't appropriate on 4.5 and presumably? later systems, /etc/localtime being a symlink to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Sydney here anyway .. but it was the right advice for the old 2.2.6 beastie. cheers, Ian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
