I have an issue with the clock on my system. It has been an issue for some time. I think it is since I update to kernel 2.6.34rc2.
Last night I use ntputil-debian to synchronize the time to 0:15. This morning at 8:00, the time was 2:45.
This is quite annoying - I am starting to be late more often
I have not tried much, since I have no idea where to start.
The values above is with kernel parameters clocksource=acpi_pm - that was just a guess based on reports related to the time running twice as fast as normal.
It is obviously not working.
I have run out of search words and I have no idea of what modules this may relate to, so any suggestions will be appreciated.
I'm running an updated debian/testing on a Lenovo Ideapad S12.
I tried reverting to the old kernel
leon:~# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.32-trunk-686 (Debian 2.6.32-5) (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.3.4 (Debian 4.3.4-6) ) #1 SMP Sun Jan 10 06:32:16 UTC 2010
After reboot time was 18:45, both in reality and on the pc.
Later, without using the pc, at 20:26, the internal time was 19:20
31 Mar 20:26:01 ntpdate: step time server 22.214.171.124 offset 3899.378076 sec
(that is 65 minutes)
So it is not a kernel 2.6.34rc2 issue.
Can anyone tell me how a linux system keeps track of time?
