Possibly, hwclock saving can be done, for example, once a > day per anacron, or... any more ideas? run hwclock stop only at shutdown, but set system clock to latest(rtc, hwclock stored time + delta, /var/log/syslog + delta) at boot? I am aware that not everybody has /var/log/syslog in heavily customized installs, but if it's there, it's usually occasionally written to. And using that is certainly faster than "find most recently modified file on all filesystems" :-) -- vbi -- featured product: ClamAV Antivirus - http://www.clamav.net/
