#1594 closed bug (invalid)

Daylight Saving Time for United States appears to be off still

Description

Daylight savings time for the United States was changed this year but when booting into Haiku today it thought the time was supposed to change when it's not supposed to happen until next week. Not sure if it's a bug in Haiku or if booting into BeOS today messed something up. Either way probably can't hurt to look at the code closer to make sure it is up to date with the 2007 changes to DST in the United States.

Seems theres was an update last week: ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/ So an update like was done for #1496 might be all that's needed?

Please give details on the date, the timezone, and the revision of your system.

Sounds like that should fix it, just update the timezone data in both BeOS and Haiku (otherwise you'll get both of them fighting over the clock). I did that for BeOS R5.0.3, using a time zone file from Linux Fedora 7 (/usr/share/zoneinfo has the files) for my time zone, and then using prefs to select it. Fortunately Linux and BeOS/Haiku use the same file format, which is generated by the Zic time zone compiler. See the related man pages for more info.

Sure we can update tzdata. What I don't understand is : the DST change occurring now is included in tzdata for months. I would suspect the timezone of scottmc's system to be something in Europe as DST happened on 10/28. So, to check this, we need more information on the configuration: date, timezone, svn revision.

Seems my laptop moved to Paris when I wasn't looking... When I move to a new version of Haiku I just copy all of the files from the image file onto my Haiku partition while in BeOS. This overwrites all my config info each time, and it seems I hadn't fixed the time zone setting this time. So yes, nothing wrong here. Ok to close ;)
