/sbin/hwclock and /etc/init.d/boot
I have the 2.7.1-2 version of util-linux installed. It appears that
the /sbin/clock program is no longer available as it has been
replaced by /sbin/hwclock. However, there is still a part of
/etc/init.d/boot that calls clock to set up the hardware clock and
system clock correspondence.
# Set and adjust the CMOS clock.
if [ ! -f /etc/adjtime ]
echo "0.0 0 0.0" > /etc/adjtime
clock -a $GMT
I may have missed an update to /etc/init.d/boot somewhere along the
line. In fact, I am almost sure I have because now I don't even have
/etc/init.d/boot. I have
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7305 Sep 30 12:50 /etc/init.d/boot.OLD
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6680 Feb 13 1997 /etc/init.d/boot.dpkg-old
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7275 May 16 1997 /etc/init.d/boot.kbd-saved
My immediate problem is that I have the hardware clock set to GMT and
my system clock is never getting set to the local timezone. I think I
will also have a problem the next time I reboot because it looks as if
/etc/init.d/boot will never get run.
I would welcome suggestions on how to get my system back in synch.
