Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80791
time off by 15 seconds after kernel update
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Since I have installed kernel-smp-2.4.18-19.7.x I've noticed the time is off
every day about -15.5 seconds. (I'm running ntpdate at night) Before that it
was like +1.8 secs per day. Just letting you know.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on
2. leave running
3. check clock 24 hours later
time off by 15 secs
time off by 15 secs ;-)
are you running ntp itself ?
are all your disks on the ide bus in DMA mode ?
No, just running ntpdate.
IDE is switched off. There is only a SCSI Controller (RAID)
The last kernel upgrade was kernel-smp-2.4.20-13.7 which I'm now running and
which seems not to have the mentioned problem anymore.
