Hint doesn't update everything, use AFP548 patch
Authored by: extra88 on Jan 31, '07 11:43:59AM
First, the 10.4.6 update should have corrected this for Tiger users. I would be concerned about other things not being updated and retry using an OS X Combo update rather than simply updating the zoneinfo stuff manually.

Second, for Panther users, following these instructions only updates one location of time zone info. There's a second one called ICU which needs to be updated through different means. ICU is what affects iCal, the menubar clock, and (I think) any Cocoa app that cares about the time.

The page on AFP548 brett linked to has a link to an installer package that will update both zoneinfo and ICU data. If you don't feel like trusting it, there's also a shell script you can use to download, compile, and install the new data. You can edit the script to stop where you want or perform the commands manually. The AFP548 article says it's for 10.3.9 but it might also work on Macs running Jaguar. At very least, the shell script would be a good place to start for fixing it yourself.

Here's the article link again:

That's why this is listed as a UNIX hint and not a 10.4 or 10.3 hint. Thanks for pointing this out though; I'll check them as well.
