As this patch is needed only for Mac OS X 10.0-10.2.8, I would seriously suggest anyone still using these OS releases to upgrade to at least Mac OS X 10.3.9. Yes there are machines that shouldn't or can't run Tiger, but any machine running 10.0-10.2.8 will run better and more securely with 10.3.9. Plus, if you look around on Google for a few minutes you can find copies of Panther for as little as $29.

I don't know how I didn't find this when I was looking before. We have a 10.2.8 server running email and having the savings time be incorrect on the server causes all sorts of weird issues, even if the display time is correct. Thank you for writing this, it took care of the core problem and will may my job much easier.

I installed UNH's DST fix on one of our older G4 towers still running 10.2.8. It was a very easy process. Checking the localtime info via Terminal (as described on UNH's DST tech info page) shows that the new DST settings are in place. Overall, this was a worthwhile undertaking.

Didn't Apple already release a patch for 10.3.9? I vaguely remember installing something about DST just a week or so ago.

Just my opinion, obviously, but isn't it less work to just manually change the time by one hour rather than download, install and update a peice of system software?

I installed this on an old clamshell iBook running Mac OS 10.2.8 and can verify that it installed and worked on it. It is too bad Apple, Inc. did not make a fix except for people using 10.4.6+ since they made many Macs made in the last 10 years that cannot run 10.4.x. Thank you UNH CIS!
