Couldn't you just take a correctly setup and updated 7.3 system's /etc/localtime file and copy it to the 7.2's etc directory? I wonder if there are any formating changes of the localtime file that would cause problems between glibc versions. I would think that format is set in stone by now.On Friday 05 January 2007 11:11, Paul Rupe wrote:I understand that no one is making updates for 7.2 anymore, so I was wondering if I can adapt the one for 7.3. The timezone rules are part of the glibc packages. Do I really need the new version of glibc, or can I simply copy the /usr/share/zoneinfo files from the updated 7.3 packages onto 7.2? In other words, do the new zoneinfo files require the new glibc to work properly?I don't believe so. In future releases, tzdata was separate from glibc so that one didn't have to do a glibc update to get new zone info, which seems to change on a month to month basis (looking at the world view).
