Hi Len !

Sorry, I maybe did not ask correctly. It is not the problem, that the time is 
not shown correctly. The background is, that other timings are running in 
double speed, too (i.e. keyboard clock and some other). This is a known 
problem on AMD mobile processors and was discussed in earlier days. The 
solution of it, was to add "disable_timer_pin_1" in the boot vcommand on grub 
or lilo. Now I read about adding "noapictimer" should solve this, too. My 
question aimed to an technical answer, if the commands "disable_timer_pin_1" 
and "noapictimer" are doing the same, or if they both solve the mentioned 
problem in different ways.

My hope was, someone knows, as I find there no answer in the web.

Best regards
