Daylight Savings Time Adjustment Patch for Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-2

I have found the "Western Australian Daylight Savings Time Adjustment Patch" for Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-2 (v5.1B PK4) but I can't find the one for the US. Can someone help me?

That patch includes the U.S. changes (but not the Canadian changes). Go ahead and install it.

After installing it, you can verify that you have the changes in for your local timezone by running:

# zdump -v /etc/zoneinfo/localtime | grep 2007

This will show you the DST transitions for 2007. You should see them on March 11 and November 4 under the new rules.

Looks to me like PK4 put the new DST rules into Tru64 5.1B OK. However, I also have an ancient system running Tru64 4.0G. Is there a patch for this OS?

Bernard,

There is a patch available for 4.0G with pk4 (the final 4.0G patch kit). See http://h30097.www3.hp.com/unix/erp/c00849060.html.

If you're running an earlier patch kit for 4.0G, there's a manual update process in the Technical Knowledge base:

http://www1.itrc.hp.com/service/cki/docDisplay.do?docLocale=en_US&docId=200000085095900 for Tru64 UNIX version 4.

http://www1.itrc.hp.com/service/cki/docDisplay.do?docLocale=en_US&docId=200000085112054 for Tru64 UNIX version 5.

Martin Moore
