I don't have the port tree installed, so you are correct that I did not update them first... I installed JUST the zoneinfo port, which according to:
http://www.freebsd.org/releng/dst_info.html "the misc/zoneinfo port can be installed to update the /usr/share/zoneinfo files, followed by running tzsetup(8) to update /etc/localtime" So why wouldn't installing this port fix the problem like advertised? I shouldn't even have the problem to begin with... When the time change happened a few weeks ago my system updated correctly, but since then I've built a new kernel (the only thing I've done) and now it's not right. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Lowell Gilbert Sent: Wednesday, March 28, 2007 11:08 AM To: Don O'Neil Cc: email@example.com Subject: Re: Time changed back to old daylight savings "Don O'Neil" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: > Ok, Thanks to Paul who sent me the previous tzdata file I was able to > download the port and install it...

That was an essential part of the advice that Kevin Kinsey gave you. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
