Re: system time

the frequency would be:

time_init: decrementer frequency = 16.640000 MHz

I'm not sure what it means but i'll look it up in the holder of all
answers, google.

/proc/device-tree/clock-frequency (couldn't find timebase-frequency)
consists of 2 questionmarks, that can't be good. I'm running 2.4.21-benh
maybe i didn't include all modules i should have.
