Re: Clock in error in NTP client env.

-> How does the CMOS clock affect the running system?  There must be

The kernel clock is set from the CMOS clock at boot time through the
clock program. Usually, it is not referred to afterwards.

-> Is there a way to set the CMOS clock to the UNIX clock without bring

clock -w will write the current unix time to the CMOS clock.  Make
sure to include the -u flag if your CMOS clock is set to UTC.
