Description J.M.Roth 2002-12-31 11:34:05 UTC
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):
kernel-smp-2.4.18-19.7.x

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on
2. leave running
3. check clock 24 hours later
    
Actual results:
time off by 15 secs

Expected results:
time off by 15 secs ;-)

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-12-31 11:52:08 UTC
are you running ntp itself ?
are all your disks on the ide bus in DMA mode ?


Comment 2 J.M.Roth 2002-12-31 12:10:33 UTC
No, just running ntpdate. 
IDE is switched off. There is only a SCSI Controller (RAID)

Comment 3 J.M.Roth 2003-05-21 13:09:34 UTC
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.
