You can clone the relevant parts of a working patch for Solaris 8 with a
short shell script (worked fine on Solaris 2.6 and Solaris 7).
## shell script hack to force solaris DST zonefile updates ## - use cat
to preserve hard links between zonefiles ## - only update pre-existing
files ## unpack Solaris 8 DST patch 109809-04 under /var/tmp/ ## then
run this script on Solaris 2.6 / 7 systems ## Keith Farrar
# for f in `find Mideast -type f -print` for f in `find * -type f
do if [ -f /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f ]; then
cat $f > /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f
ls -lg /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/$f
