Hi,

I updated kernel (alway using the old .config and updating) and quite some stuff in userland. Now both on boot and on halt, I see a message that says the system clock cannot be set.

What could cause that? a script problem? a kernel problem? It has been working for the past 5 years on this laptop...

Where can I find a log with a more exact messages? I grep'ed in /var/log but found nothing.

thanks

Try $ dmesg | grep -i 'rtc\|clock'

I get nothing. does it mean my kernel lost support for my hardware clock?


hwclock: Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method

Failed to set the system clock

perhaps some kernel option that changed? I feared it was an init thing.

I checked the kernel config, the whole RTC section was disabled. Probably "make oldconfig° did not work.
Standard cmos just works.
