move hwclock to higher in resume script
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:33 EDT
Currently, resetting the clock is one of the later things done in the
resume script. My system for some reason comes up 5 hours off initially
(some sort of timezone vs GMT issue -- bios is set to EST because I
dual-boot with that loser OS), but the problem would also happen with
laptops that don't update the time properly for other reasons: the initial
things right after resume (including, obviously, things called in the
resume script, like bringing up t gethe network) logged with the wrong time.
So, setting the clock correctly should be one of the first things done, if
not the very first.
Your clock shouldn't jump if you rebuild your kernel without
Ah, yes, thanks. However, I've had trouble getting the kernel to rebuild
cleanly, and this isn't exactly a fast system (and it's currently the only one
I've got to test on...). Hopefully I'll have better luck with RC1.
It'd still be nice for the hwclock setting to be moved up, for cases where
something is broken.
Moved to the 2nd thing (2nd only to getting the hard disks back up even with inherently
broken BIOSes) in 3.0.2-6.
