Mandrake Updated timezone packages are being provided for older Mandriva Linux systems that do not contain the new Daylight Savings Time information for 2007 for certain time zones. These updated packages contain the new information.
 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                 MDKA-2007:018-1
 Package : timezone
 Date    : March 9, 2007
 Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0,
           Multi Network Firewall 2.0
 Problem Description:
 Updated timezone packages are being provided for older Mandriva Linux
 systems that do not contain the new Daylight Savings Time information
 for 2007 for certain time zones.  These updated packages contain the
 new information.


 This update addresses timezone files such as Canada/Mountain that had
 not been previously updated to the DST information.  While files such
 as MST7MDT were updated, the counterpart files such as Canada/Mountain
 or America/Edmonton, etc. were not.  This update addresses that and
 also ensures that the new timezone information is copied over
 /etc/localtime so no further configuration is required.
