Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-01-16 20:29:52 UTC
'Bramhs' from kdemultimedia-2.0.20010101-1 fails if a kernel does not
have /dev/rtc support (not required kernel feature which does not work
on some boards; recently, for example, on a Sharp laptop a presence of
/dev/rtc was causing a wild behaviour of a hardware clock).  It should
at least put an alert on a screen if a lack of this resource cannot
be worked around.
