I wanted use ntp on Slackware 14.1 kernel-generic-smp-3.10.30_smp-i686,
What I noticed after reboot it took ages to save hwclock and the time was incorrect.
I tried command hwclock --show and nothing, tryed /dev/rtc and rtc0 still nothing.
I have checked zgrep HCTOSYS /proc/config.gz not set.
After kernel recompilation finally I got CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS=y
CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE="rtc0" and now everything works fine.
Hwclock shows time
and ntp works well. Question, is there an easier
way to make RTC work that way?
