Shalom,

Red Hat has released a half dozen DST fixes this year in the form of new rpms. Unless your government has made a change in secret or the last 5 days, you are covered with the latest tz rpm form Red Hat.

I deal with it by keeping my systems current on relavent rpms

Re: DST change for brazil

I have other set of servers with the same kernel/RHEL version . But with a different Tz version tzdata-2006m-3.el2_1

I dont see any updated version for this too.

But existence of two different versions tzdata-2006m-3.el2_1/tzdata-2007d-1.el2_1 and both of them says no updated version ..

Looking the names one sound like of 2006 and other one of 2007

Re: DST change for brazil

Yogee had the right information.Currently i have installed tzdata-2007h-1.el2_1 for RHEL 2.1 on all DEV servers using up2date.

Please note that all previously-released errata(around 20 packages) relevant to these systems also updated and which is mandatory before updating the tzdata
