Does anyone know if most linux distros have already incorporated updates for

I have seen things regarding updates for MS and Apple products, but nothing on
Linux.

To check to see if your system hasn't been updated do something Similar to the following:

       /usr/sbin/zdump -v US/Eastern | fgrep 2007

If you see Apr 1, and Oct 28 in the output your system doesn't have the update.

If your distro is RHEL based download tzdata-2006m-2.el4.src.rpm and install the rpm.


If you have Java on your system and use it, you will also need to update it as well.
Download tzupdater.jar from java.sun.com.

To test your java installation use: java -jar tzupdater.jar -t
If the JRE has timezone data that doesn't match the one in the tool, the verification tests report errors and fail.

To update your java installation use: java -jar tzupdater.jar -u
