You can clone the relevant parts of a working patch for Solaris 8 with a
short shell script (worked fine on Solaris 2.6 and Solaris 7).

-KF

#!/bin/sh
## shell script hack to force solaris DST zonefile updates ## - use cat
to preserve hard links between zonefiles ## - only update pre-existing
files ## unpack Solaris 8 DST patch 109809-04 under /var/tmp/ ## then
run this script on Solaris 2.6 / 7 systems ## Keith Farrar
<kfarrar@xxxxxxxx>

cd /var/tmp/109809-04/SUNWcsu/reloc/usr/share/lib/zoneinfo

# for f in `find Mideast -type f -print` for f in `find * -type f
-print`
do if [ -f /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f ]; then
cat $f > /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f
ls -lg /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f
fi
done

Hi,
I am working on getting Solaris 2.7 compliant with the new DST
changes for March 2007. I downloaded the latest updates from:

wget ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tz*.tar.gz

Ran zic on northamerica
Then tested with a zdump:


zdump -v EST5EDT |grep 2007


which still reported April when the DST would occur. What am I
missing? this worked for linux.
