6 months ago, after daylight savings day i noticed my clock was off an hour for about a month. now that daylight savings day was last week my clock is behind one hour.
for example it is about 2:00 boston time but my clock shows:
[schneidz@hyper ntp]$ date
Sun Mar 16 13:01:43 EST 2008
i tried a bunch of different time servers... the server im using now is: 0.us.pool.ntp.org.
is there some sort of bug with ntp and daylight savings time.
tz is a database that contains time zone information i.e. +/- hours from UTC and the start/end of daylight saving time (officialy its not plural). Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. Most current distributions would of had an update but since RH9 is obsolete you will need to change your database manually.
As already stated this isn't a ntp problem since its your system that actually adjusts the time from UTC.
