Description rod.skinner 1999-09-21 21:48:24 UTC
The standard time from the 2.2.5-15 release that is
installed by the Redhat install routines works fine.  I re-
compile the kernel that installed at /usr/src/linux and the
time command will return a negative value for the elapsed
time.

I built the kernel with make xconfig, followed by the make
commands:

make dep
make
make install
make modules
make modules_install

The new kernel loads and seems to run fine.  The only
problem that I have seen is that about one of three times
the command:

time sleep 1

will return a negative "elapsed" time.  The other time
fields in the display seem to be OK.

I am using the Linux SMP mode on an 8-processor Pentium III
processor system.
