I still get:
FATAL: Error inserting rtc_cmos (/lib/modules/2.6.34-rc6aba4/kernel/drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.ko): No such device
but in syslog, there is now:
May 3 22:57:15 phrixos kernel: [ 33.860000] rtc_cmos: dev (254:0)
May 3 22:57:15 phrixos kernel: [ 33.860000] rtc_cmos rtc_cmos: rtc core: registered rtc_cmos as rtc0
May 3 22:57:15 phrixos kernel: [ 33.864000] rtc_cmos rtc_cmos: only 24-hr BCD mode supported
(these three lines appear once for each try)
However, trying to access also give:
aba@phrixos:~$ sudo hwclock --show --debug
hwclock from util-linux-ng 2.16.2
hwclock: Open of /dev/rtc failed, errno=6: No such device or address.
No usable clock interface found.
Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.
