Proc-rtc


Hi, everyone! I hope its the right place for this question.

I'm using slackware-current, kernel 2.6.7. on nForce2 based box with Abit GeForce2 MX 400.
I installed (from src) MPlayer. It's docs say that for better performance I should do:
--------------
"echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq"
--------------

Well, the problem is that I don't have /proc/sys/dev/rtc/. Actually I have only:
-------------
root@homedesk:/home/koko# ls /proc/sys/dev/
cdrom scsi
root@homedesk:/home/koko#
-------------

Pls, tell me what I did wrong not to have RTC?

ok, well it sounds like either the rtc moduile isn't built into your kernel, or isn't a module (or just plain hasn't been loaded). look for /lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/char/rtc.ko if it's there, modprobe rtc. if not, recompile the kernel.

mind you isn't only advisable for mplayer, it will still work ok with out.

Exactly! ;-)
Which kernel-config-option should I turn "ON"?
I'm not publishing my ".config" because I thought it may be considered as spam. If it's OK to publish it - I'll post a copy.

Ok. Found it under:
---------
Device Drivers >>Character devices >> Enhanced Real Time Clock Support
---------
This "/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/drivers/char/rtc.ko" was the tip I needed.
acid_kewpie, BIG 10x for your fast reply! ;-)
