Description Daniel Roesen 2001-05-25 10:20:33 EDT
hwclock(8) is currently in /sbin, but FHS 2.2 mandates it residing in

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] FHS 2.2 Released
Date: Thu, 24 May 2001 17:19:32 +1000

Major changes:
        o hwclock moved from /sbin to /usr/sbin
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-25 10:53:24 EDT
See bug #42274 for why it's in /sbin (so it can be run on boot.)

I suppose we could add a symlink.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2001-07-18 14:58:39 EDT
Added symlink in my package to appease brain-dead FHS :)
