Description of problem:
This is a Dell GX280, latest Bios A05, single cpu kernel though HT possible.
Cannot sync system clock to hw clock, error message on reboot, when /etc/init.d/halt should do this.
[root@pele ~]# hwclock --systohc
select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out
I waited for the 2.6.12 series of kernel, to see a change, but no go.
This error was with earlier kernels, too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3, util-linux-2.12a-24.4
