I am sorry to hear that it did not work. Just to make sure that we do
not have a misunderstanding here: Do you still get the "select() to
/dev/rtc..." error if you run the hwclock command with the "--directisa"
option? (hwclock should bypass /dev/rtc when called like that,
therefore I am a pit puzzled.)
You might have to try some of the other options described in "man
hwclock". If you find a way to make the hwclock command work then you
can put those options in /etc/default/rcS.
