I've been asked to update a very old FreeBSD system -- an embedded system that's chugging along happily on FreeBSD 2.2.8 -- to handle the new start and stop dates for Daylight Savings Time. There's no need to update the OS on the system, because it is firewalled from the Internet and runs the embedded hardware it has to run just fine. But it does need the clock to be right to perform scheduled tasks.
If I simply copy /etc/localtime from a FreeBSD 6.1 system to that one, will it work? Or has the time zone file format changed at all? (I seem to recall that it was fixed by POSIX, but I don't know if versions of FreeBSD that old are POSIX-compliant.) --Brett Glass _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
