Question updating legacy PPC RHEL 3.0 for timezone update issues


My company has just contacted me in a panic about thier old PPC Redhat Enterprise Linux Servers and the new Time Zone Changes.

Also, they have let their subscription laps as well, so no go with Redhat direct, hense my coming here

I SSH'd in and checked them out with zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep 2007 and they come back with:

zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep 2007

/etc/localtime Sun Apr 1 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Apr 1 01:59:59 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000
/etc/localtime Sun Apr 1 07:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Apr 1 03:00:00 2007 EDT isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
/etc/localtime Sun Oct 28 05:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Oct 28 01:59:59 2007 EDT isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
/etc/localtime Sun Oct 28 06:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Oct 28 01:00:00 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000

Which isn't correct.

So I did the following as root,

I grabbed the tzdata2007c.tar.gz from here (ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata2007c.tar.gz)

tar -xzvf tzdata2007c.tar.gz

zic -d zoneinfo northamerica

cd zoneinfo

cp -r * /usr/share/zoneinfo/

I had to hit y a bunch of times to complete the copy.

Running zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep 2007 returns the same info as before,
running zdump -v /etc/localtime EST5EDT | grep 2007 returns both the correct and the incorrect data

/etc/localtime Sun Apr 1 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Apr 1 01:59:59 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000
/etc/localtime Sun Apr 1 07:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Apr 1 03:00:00 2007 EDT isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
/etc/localtime Sun Oct 28 05:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Oct 28 01:59:59 2007 EDT isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
/etc/localtime Sun Oct 28 06:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Oct 28 01:00:00 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000
EST5DST Sun Mar 11 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 01:59:59 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000
EST5DST Sun Mar 11 07:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 03:00:00 2007 DST isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
EST5DST Sun Nov 4 05:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:59:59 2007 DST isdst=1 gmtoff=-14400
EST5DST Sun Nov 4 06:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:00:00 2007 EST isdst=0 gmtoff=-18000

I also tried to install the RPM patch tzdata-2007c-1.el3.noarch.rpm but again, same results.

Any help here would be appreciated, as the Time Zone changes SUNDAY!

thanks
