Description rychlik 1999-06-14 19:14:29 UTC
The script rc.sysinit writes to the hardware clock at boot
time. On a workstation which does not use the network to
set its clock, this results in incorrect system time after
every boot. Resetting the hardware clock should not be the
default in rc.sysinit! The fix is to comment out one line in
rc.sysinit. Put '#' in front of '$CLOCK --adjust'. I will
also post a patch to rc.sysinit.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-23 19:57:59 UTC
the hwclock --adjust call was removed in initscripts-4.22.
