Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know that America has moved to PDT (DST) on March 11th. The problem is when I executed date command on March 15th the result is showing me still PST insted of PDT. So I manually set the date to first of April then its showing me PDT why this weird behavior.
I intentionally wanted to test for DST but it is not updating properly. The kernel was built by follwoing LFS..
America changed its DST schedule. Not all of a America is in the Pacific time zone though. We have Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific (within the contiguous 48 - Hawaii and Alaska have others).
If it is supposed to be in Pacific as indicated by your seeing either PST or PDT then the above doesn't matter - just wanted to make sure you understood that. California is in Pacific time zone.
Having said all that I'd again refer you to the thread link I posted above. It will tell you all you need to know.
Summarized it basically will tell you:
1) Update the timezone files in /usr/share/zoneinfo (either by using downloading the zoneinfo files tar and using zic to compile OR by using update provided for your distro if it exists).
2) Copy or link the newly compiled zoneinfo file to /etc/localtime.
3) Run zdump -v /etc/localtime |grep 2007 to insure it shows the correct dates for time change in 2007.
In your case you'd want either PST8PDT or America/Los_Angeles from /usr/share/zoneinfo.
You should start a new thread rather than appending to an old thread that has nothing to do with the question you asked.
This will help insure people see it. Usually the only people that see old threads like this are the people who subscribed to it. For new threads people will see it when they look at "zero reply threads".
