Description Erik Verbruggen 1999-04-29 08:05:44 UTC
To read the time correctly on some Linux/Alpha systems, it's
needed to pass the -S flag to "/sbin/clock". To do this, I
added this flag to CLOCKFLAGS in the rc.sysinit. But maybe
you could make an option in "/etc/sysconfig/clock", like
"SRM=(true|flase)" that toggles this option. I think this
would make some Alpha users very happy.

Thanks, Erik.

there's now support in initscripts-4.22 for a 'SRM=true' line
in /etc/sysconfig/clock.
Support in timeconfig may come at a later date.
