1.215.1.  RHBA-2009:0279: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0279
An updated system-config-date package that fixes a bug when run by firstboot is now available.
system-config-date is a graphical interface for changing the system date and time, configuring the system time zone, and setting up the NTP daemon to synchronize the time of the system with an NTP time server.
When run as part of firstboot, system-config-date erroneously deleted some widgets instead of hiding them. This caused "An error has occurred in the timezone module..." errors to present when trying to display the time-zone screen. With this update the widgets are, correctly, hidden and not removed, ensuring the time-zone screen displays as expected.
All users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
