Please ignore if this was discussed before (though it seems not to be
from the search results).

I'm subscribed to Slackware security notices and they seem to have
released an update to their system for the time zone changes in the
US. I was wondering whether we received such an update ourselves. I do
not remember updating any packages that mentioned "time zone" in the

>From their notice:
New glibc-zoneinfo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,
10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to update the timezone information to
account for the extention of Daylight Savings Time (DST) in the US.
This is an important update as any machine in the US (in an area using
DST) running Slackware 10.2 or earlier will otherwise have a system
clock off by one hour for a month starting on March 11.  It is strongly
suggested to upgrade this package before March 11, 2007.

Sorry to bother you,
