[Bug 216101] New: YaST Time Zone selection does not take into account date presentation
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

Summary: YaST Time Zone selection does not take into account date
Product: SUSE Linux 10.1
Version: Final
Platform: i386
OS/Version: SuSE Linux 10.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: alpha096@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx

During installation we select the time Zone by country that great, however this
does NOT alter the date display on every file and indicated by the clock.

For example the US format for the date is MM/DD/YY and this should apply to US
based locations.

For those locations, lime me the date format is DD/MM/YY.

There is no ability I can see to effect the date format and it is not linked to
the location chosen. Rather than try to link the correct date format to the
location it might be easier to add a field in the installation location and
YaST Date and Time to be able to choose the correct date format for the region.

It starts to get really difficult to constantly re-read the date backwards for
me and others who dont observe MM/DD/YY.
