Description dkaplan 1999-09-21 19:57:54 UTC
Hi,

I have RH 6.0 installed on my Gateway Solo 2500 laptop.  The
time on the computer gains about 10-20 minutes every time i
boot up.  This is a linux problem as the CMOS clock is fine
as long as I dont boot into linux -  ie. use windows.
Everything else seems fine, but it makes the day get a lot
shorter (not necessarily a bad thing).

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
DAvid

This is almost certainly a bug in your BIOS.
You can work around it by adding
	hwclock --hctosys
at the end of your /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
