Daylight saving not working properly with linux-2.6. kernel
The daylight saving action is not working
Time zone was set for that Australia(parth) and issued reboot.
Now for DST, (Daylight Saving Time):
For 29 Oct 2006 (sunday) day, if set time is 1:59:00 than after 1 minute it will
become 3:00:00 as per DST . This was found to be happening.i.e DST start worked fine.
But DST ending which was supposed to be on 25 March 2007 (sunday) didnt work. The expected behaviour was one minute after 2.59.59 (AM) the time should have become 2.0.0.(AM) . But it continued to become 3.00.00 and then 3.00.01 and so on.
This behaviour is observed in the southern hemisphere countries only like newzealand, chile etc.
Please suggest if this is a configuration of kernel issue or this is an inherent bug in kernel 2.6
Strangely for linux-2.4 this issue is not there,
