8.213. system-config-date

An updated system-config-date package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The system-config-date package provides a graphical interface for changing the system date and time, configuring the system time zone, and setting up the NTP daemon to synchronize the time of the system with an NTP time server.

Bug Fix

When using unsupported locale settings during system installation, the firstboot utility previously failed with a stack trace after the initial phase of installation. Consequently, the user was not able to configure peripherals, users, kdump, and other settings. With this update, the underlying code has been modified to catch exceptions caused by incorrect locale values and firstboot now warns the users to change their locale instead of failing.
Users of system-config-date are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
