clock skew detected problem - no way to rectify it
i've got a rh 7.3 build and there seems to be a problem with my system clock,
after shutting down the system properly and then returning the next day, i find that the clock is out of sync, and then this progresses if i don't change the system clock everyday, resulting in the the date/time being completely out of range,
i noticed that when i had sendmail configured on startup, the message "clock skew detected - ... build may be incomplete "
so i threw sendmail out (i didn't need it)
but the clock problem still persists
i tried using the date and the hwclock commands but to no avail , each time i shut it down and boot, the clock seems to remain in a standstill
is there a way to rectify it? also does anybody know how to issue the above two commands(date and hwclock) at startup?
