Subject: Clock drift on Transmeta Crusoe
Date: Mon, 11 Jun 2001 12:36:04 +0100 (BST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20010611113604.4073.qmail@web3504.mail.yahoo.com> (raw)

Hello,

Searching through the mailing list I could not find a
reference to this problem, hence this post.

Having ran various kernel and distribution
combinations (SGI's 2.4.2-xfs bundled with their Red
Hat installer, 2.4-xfs-1.0 and 2.4 CVS trees, Linux
Mandrake with default kernel 2.4.3, and lastly
2.4.5-ac9), compiled for generic i386 and/or Transmeta
Crusoe with APM off or on, one thing sticks out : a
clock drift of a few minutes per day.

This problem might not be noticeable for most users
since notebooks are not normally left running that
long, but it is rather serious. I can choose not to
sync the software and hardware clock on shutdown and
re-read the hardware clock every hour or so but it is
rather kludgy.

Any suggestions and/or user experiences more than
welcome.

Regards,

Michel
