Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228929
Slow system clock
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:26:42 EST
Description of problem:
The PC is an Athlon based Dell Precision.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use default kernel options.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on without keyboard connected
2. Access PC via SSH or VNC client.
3. Watch as System Clock runs at half real speed.
A work around is to boot kernel with acpi=off
System time should be kept accurate with acpi active.
acpi on is desired to allow remote shut down of the machine as well as power
This appears to be the same symptoms as those reported extensively for linux
running under VMWare.
Definitely a kernel problem, reassigning to proper component.
Read ya, Phil
