Subject: Time zone rules change



Could you please support for my request, 


I have a Red-hat Linux server in Egypt, I adjusted the time and date and
I selected Africa/Cairo as a time zone to reflect the correct time
automatically per summer, winter. The current settings of this file
contain the summer/winter time change rules as the last Thursday of
April, September respectively. 


Since the rules are changed lately by Egypt government, I need to change
the predefined rules in the time zone file, but I don't know how. I
found many but scattered information on the internet. So I need your


Could you please provide me with a direct procedure to do the required


Thank you and Best Regards,

Hassan Hammad
