#1 Updated by Laurent Grawet about 7 years ago

With Xen 4.4, the domU is started but the time is still UTC. So the parameter doesn't work either.

I'll do the changes but the fix will be in the core (C++) so it can not be easily patched.

#3 Updated by Laurent Grawet about 7 years ago

Thank you.
That's why it would be good to make source packages available.
See Request #2882: Add src packages to download repository

Source Packages are already available inside the package tarballs:

Ok, that's fine !
I'm using online repository for updates and only looked at src tar.gz, so I couldn't find src packages...
