Description rodsmith 1999-06-08 14:37:02 UTC
After upgrading from Red Hat 5.2 to 6.0, I find that Red Hat sets my hardware clock forward every time I reboot. The amount increases with increasing amounts of time shut off (the clock increments close to an hour after being off overnight), so I suspect that the init scripts' calls to /sbin/hwclock are to blame (or, more likely, the default values in /etc/adjtime -- doing rpm -V initscripts reveals that this file hasn't been changed on my system since it was installed).

There were some time problems found when using apmd on laptops and some desktops where the time was set to GMT inappropriately. Please update to the errata rpm pf apmd at ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.0/i386 and reopen this bug if that doesnt solve your problem.

Upgrading the APMD RPM (I'm now using apmd-3.0beta5-8) does *NOT* solve the problem. I'm using a FIC PA-2011 motherboard in a desktop system, and the system clock is set to local time, not GMT. Time shifts are not usually in even multiples of an hour.

what happens if you comment out the: $CLOCK --adjust line in rc.sysinit? ------- Email Received From "Roderick W. Smith" <rodsmith> 06/17/99 18:11 -------
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-23 19:58:59 UTC
The adjust of the hardware clock is removed as of initscripts-4.22, available in the next Raw Hide release....
