I'm running production systems without access to the internet (yes it
still happens). If I had been able to run yum, I wouldn't be sweating
the problem. For those who might not be able to find the old posts...
The real information I was lacking to find what I needed was the tzdata
rpm name... the change log for the RPM is provided below.
You can find copies of the RPM on most updated mirrors or @
Also, thanks for the google "site:" tip.
Thanks guys, all is well now.

Les Mikesell has covered checking the systems to see if they are up to
date. I will tell you to update FC3 and FC4 systems.
First, you need to configure the machines to get updates from the Fedora
Legacy repos. This is covered in detail at:
My experience was that the main Fedora legacy servers were unavailable.
Mirrors were required, including changing the "baseurl" entries in
"/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-legacy.repo". A list of Fedora legacy mirrors
Once this is done, updating the timezone data is as simple as:
# yum update tzdata
For reference, this updated my FC3 machines to "tzdata-2006a-2.fc3.1"
and my FC4 machines were already at "tzdata-2006g-1.fc4" and did not
have an update available.
Once the tzdata update is complete, it can be verified as follows:
# zdump -v US/Eastern | grep 2007
US/Eastern Sun Mar 11 06:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 01:59:59 2007 EST
US/Eastern Sun Mar 11 07:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Mar 11 03:00:00 2007 EDT
US/Eastern Sun Nov 4 05:59:59 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:59:59 2007 EDT
US/Eastern Sun Nov 4 06:00:00 2007 UTC = Sun Nov 4 01:00:00 2007 EST
Note that the DST rules correctly state that it starts on March 11th and
ends on November 4th. Something is wrong if they still say April 1st to
