Amd 64 Chip - SUSE - Clock Speeds Ahead

I am running SUSE with an AMD 64 chip.

The clock keeps speeding ahead. It will get to point that every second is a minute to the server. I am running NTP every 5 minutes but that is just helping to mask the problem.

I have tried the no_timer_check fix but that did not help.

I have another server running almost identical hardware except HDs and same kernel but it is doing fine time wise.

This just started happening after I reinstalled SUSE after a HD failure. Before that it was fine.

Fairly new MB (Bought new 4 months ago) so I think the battery and MB are fine as it worked perfect before having to reinstall SUSE. I reinstalled using the same SUSE build as before and running on the clone server which is fine.

I know your using SUSE, but this is the best I can do for you. Here is a link to the Gentoo Wiki that discusses this problem.

It looks like their solution is the same as yours. Just sync to an internet time server fairly often. They blame it on dying CMOS batteries... I suppose its always possible, even on new MBs.
