Incorrect time for "Pacific/Auckland" timezone, and time-setting bugs
|Reported by:||Owned by:||axeld|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
I'm running Haiku on QEmu (Haiku kernel version 12MAY2006). I'm running QEmu on Linux - Fedora Core 5. AMD Athlon64.
The bug : Haiku shows the incorrect time for the "Pacific/Auckland"
timezone. It shows as two hours earlier than it should be. There are also inconsistencies in the time shown in the "Time and Date" widget, and the time shown on the menu (just under the "leaf").
I've got screenshots which should help in fixing this bug.
The process I went through (to set the time) is as follows -
1 - I went into "Preferences/Time". The first screenshot (called
"Haiku_12MAY2006_time_before_any_changes.png" shows the situation before I have made any changes.
2 - I changed the timezone to "Pacific/Auckland" (by selecting "Pacific"
from the dropdown list, then clicking "Auckland"). However, this did not change the *place* shown in "Current time zone" - it still showed "Paris". The relevant screenshot here is - "Haiku_12MAY2006_timezone_changed_to_Auckland.png".
The "Time In: " *did* change - it said "Auckland", and the time changed to 8:39AM (two hours before the correct time, 10:39AM, which is shown in the extreme top-right of the screenshot. Note that the time on the menu (just under the "leaf") has not changed yet, so it looks like just setting the timezone doesn't change it.
3 - I then corrected the time (as shown in the screenshot called -
"Haiku_12MAY2006_corrected_time_but_shows_as_Paris.png" . As can be seen, the time on the menu is now correct, and the time next
to "Current time zone" is correct. But the name of the current time-zone is still "Paris", and "Time in Auckland" is showing as 8:44PM. Hmmmm ..... :-).
So, there you go. I'm very happy to test this - I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Haiku! Keep up the great work - looking forward to hearing back from you soon -
Oh, btw - if you can let me know how to attach screenshots to bug-reports, I'll do that. It'll make fixing this bug easier. Thanks!
