New DST Problem.

#EDIT Fixed it. Just set UTC back to the correct time then used timeconfig. Still don't know how it happened.

I've tried the following ways to upgrade my system (slack 10.2) with no succusses:

1. upgradepkg glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.5-noarch-7_slack10.2.tgz then set the time with timeconfig and manually (ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST5EDT /etc/localtime)

2. I've install tzcode2007c.tar.gz and tzdata2007c.tar.gz then zic northamerica and
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST5EDT /etc/localtime again. I've also tried zic -d /tmp/zoneinfo and manually copied over the files to be sure.

Nothing seems to work it keeps coming up with EST5EDT four hours behind what it should be an UTC the correct current time in my timezone. EST is suppose to be four hours behind UTC during DST so the problem makes sense, I just can't figure out how to fix it. Any help is appreciated.
