Apparently the IERS have announced a leap second due at midnight, June 30th this year.
Is CentOS/RHEL 5.4 properly updated to support/transition along with updated NTP systems? I was under the impression that it would need an updated tzdata package but wasn't sure.
I checked the change-log for the tzdata package and noticed the following:
* Tue Feb 27 2007 Petr Machata <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 2007c-1 - Upstream 2007c - Pulaski County, Indiana, switched back to eastern time. - Turkey switches at 01:00 standard time, not at 01:00 UTC. - Upstream 2007b - Changes to the commentary in "leapseconds". - Resolves: #230089 * Tue Aug 22 2006 Petr Machata <email@example.com> - 2006j-1 - Upstream 2006j - Honduras stopped observing DST on Monday at 00:00 - America/Bermuda will follow the US's lead next year - America/Moncton will use US-style rules next year - New Zone America/Blanc-Sablon, for Canadians who observe AST all year - New zone: America/Atikokan instead of America/Coral_Harbour - New zones: Europe/Jersey, Europe/Guernsey, Europe/Isle_of_Man - Historical changes - Commentary updates - Upstream 2006i - localtime.c fixes - Upstream 2006h - zic leapsecond fix
Is the "zic leapsecond fix" related?
