Hi,

We have an application which determines the timezone and if the daylight
saving is active. To do this, the struct tm is used, and the functions
localtime() and gmtime(). The problem is the application correctly says it
is 'daylight saving active' for Solaris/Unix/WinNT, but for Linux not.

The system settings are:

GMT="--localtime"
TIMEZONE="Europe/Amsterdam"

Has anyone an idea what whe are doing wrong?
