Description Ralph Loader 2003-02-03 18:15:15 UTC
Description of problem:

In /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, the flag --arc may be given to /sbin/hwclock.

hwclock does not have a --arc option.

I can work around this by removing 'ARC=true' from /etc/sysconfig/clock - but
redhat-config-date insists on adding that back again.
