North American DST Changes
As most North American users know by now, the U.S. government has mandated that DST changes start earlier beginning in 2007.
Being that Myth is heavily dependent on having the correct time information, having the correct time is crucial. Here is how update your time:
cd mkdir tzinfo cd tzinfo wget ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2007c.tar.gz tar zxf tzdata2007c.tar.gz zic -d /tmp/zoneinfo northamerica cd /tmp/zoneinfo cp -r * /usr/share/zoneinfo
After performing the above commands, you should have new time zone info in /usr/share/zoneinfo. Next just run
to select your timezone. After setting your timezone, you may want to run
to sync with an NTP server (NOTE: this command does NOT set up ntpd for you, it's just a one-time sync).
Here is a little script that should do the trick (works on RH5.2 up ) Note not all FC distros include 'zic '
- This worked for User:Lynchmv on Slackware 10.2.0
- Gentoo Users
- I built my Gnetoo/Mythbox over a year ago (almost2) and forgot to update the timezone for the new US DST settings.
- All my Schedule Times were off by an hour (like the 11:00 news showed up at 10:00)....
- do the following (as root)
emerge --sync emerge sys-libs/timezone-data
- Check your clock and the Listings in myth
- That's it
