Description Robert V. Mitchell 1999-12-09 17:54:54 EST
After upgrading from RH 5.2 to RH 6.1, the system sporadically changes it's
time on it's own.  From the cron log:

The 'traps' script is run by cron every minute.

The system is a DEC Venturis FX (P II) with 64Mb ram, 2 Gb disk, S3 Trio 64
Video card and DEC Monitor.  The latest software security and enhancement
upgrades have been applied.  The box is used primarily as a name server and
workstation.  It's also running MRTG.  MRTG also complains about current
time being before previously logged time.

Ideas on reproducing this? I hate to point fingers, but are you sure it's not a
hardware problem?
