System Clock is Wrong: It times out when trying to save/load


Code:
Tue Dec 11 03:55:50 2007: Setting the system clock..
Tue Dec 11 03:55:55 2007: select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out
Anyone know how to fix this?

Has a similar error about timing out when shutting down but uh, I don't know where to find/enable my shutdown logs :P

this may be a problem with SMP-Kernels (Mutlicore) and the RTC-Module.
1. call hwclock, this will reproduce the error.
2. call modprobe -r rtc
3. recall hwclock, now the clock can be read
4. wait for a reolution here...
5. inform me

Fixed by editing /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh with ' hwclock --localtime --directisa ' (added --directisa)

'HWCLOCKPARS="--directisa"' (added "--directisa")

Make sure 'UTC=no'in /etc/default/rcS
