Category: Linux & UnixFatih Acar @ 15:59

Turkey is breaking step with Europe and keeping summer time through the winter. Instead of turning clocks back an hour as they do in the European Union in the autumn, Turkey will keep the clocks as they are and effectively change the country’s time zone. You have to implement new tzdata-2016g package on your systems to accommodate new decision.

You can install from Red Hat yum repository if you use Red Hat system. (Red Hat, Centos, Oracle Linux)


yum install tzdata*2016g*

Both tzdata-java-2016g and tzdata-2016g package installation will be useful.

Check New Adjustment

You check new time zone status with zdump command like below.

zdump -c 2016,2017 -v “Europe/Istanbul”
