zdump fails with segmentation fault

I have updated the tzdata, timezone update in x86_64 server. I haven't updated glibc-common since, glibc needs glibc-common of same version. After installing tzdata rpm, did copy of respective timezone file to /etc/localtime. I am worried whether this takes cares daylight savings. Thanks

Re: zdump fails with segmentation fault


provide follwing

date
uname -a
cat /etc/redhat-release
rpm -qa|grep tzdata

have a look on following threads

was there any recommendation to do "After installing tzdata rpm, did copy of respective timezone file to /etc/localtime"?

Does the real error(or form your analysis of the error) say anything about the glibc packages? what was the exact zdump command used?

As per the recommendation from Redhat article http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_79_9950 , we were trying to update glibc.
