Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3610
System time incorrect.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
Windows likes to have the hardware clock set to local time.
So I set the linux clock config to ARC=true.
But then the sysinit script ends up issuing:
hwclock -hctosys -A
-A is not a valid option (-a is),
and anyway the version of hwclock on my system
will only accept one option per call.
what kind of system do you have? IIRC, you don't
have 'hwclock' on an alpha, and that's the only platform
where 'ARC' is a meaningful option...
Ah, I see.
My /etc/sysconfig/clock said "UTC=true,ARC=false" so I
assumed that ARC was some sort of alternative to UTC.
Now I see that the answer is to have BOTH false.
Despite the plethora of sys.admin. tools, it's difficult
to find out what they do in terms of files. Is this documented
anywhere? sag and nag (spectacularly unhelpful names) where not
initially installed with my system, and only later
did I realise they were actually packages.
