Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 155112
System Clock Running @ 2x Speed with ATI Radeon Xpress 200
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:18:58 EST
Description of problem:
System clock runs at 2x faster than it should. From extensive Google searches,
it appears this is a problem w/ATI RS200 chipset and the kernel. An excellent
thread outlining the problem can be found here:
and confirmation of the problem can be found here:
For my comparison purposes, I sync'd the hardware clock with the system clock by
'ntpdate pool.ntp.org && hwclock -w', waited approximately fifteen minutes and
ran 'hwclock --show' and compared it to the system clock. The result is the
system clock was fifteen minutes ahead of the hardware clock.
The motherboard I use is the MSI RS480M2-IL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot the computer.
Steps to Reproduce:
System clock runs at 2x speed.
System clock to run at normal speed.
I mentioned this on the test list... the Kanotix 32 bit distro
(http://kanotix.com/info/index.php) does not skew my clock. I HTH.
I have verified this bug as well. The system is set up with the following:
Motherboard:MSI RS480M2-IL BIOS rev 3.3
Memory: Set to Dual Channel 2x256 Corsair
IDE: HDD Master DVDRom Slave
Video: Onboard Video
Keyboard & Mouse: Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite (connected via USB only)
