SUMMARY: patch for US daylight savings time changes on Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6, 2.7

Thanks to everyone for quick replies! Short answer is that since 2.5.1
and 2.6 are past EOL, I can pay sun $150K to provide me with patches, or
make the mods myself using:




on latest timezone tables downloaded from
<> . This is supposed to be fairly straightforward.


Supposedly a Solaris 7 patch may actually be out there yet, as it's
reaching EOL in 2007.


It was also noted that these OS are very old, and really should be
updated - understood, but due to complicated circumstances probably
won't happen, definitely won't happen before March 26th. Sigh...


Thanks again!
