Automatic mirror geolocation in drakxtools-backend in Mandriva Linux 2008.1 would fail for some locales, because it uses backward compatibility timezone names for which there were no zone.tab entries in timezone (bug #40184), this makes software like urpmi to not select optimal mirrors in its automatic media/mirrors addition mode. This update makes timezone provide backward timezone name entries in zone.tab file to solve this issue. Additionaly, updated timezone packages are being provided for older Mandriva Linux systems that do not contain the new Daylight Savings Time information for 2008 and later for certain time zones. Update: The previous timezone update for Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring triggered a bug in gnome-panel, making it immediately crash when the Gnome session was started. This new update works around the gnome-panel bug.
