Description Artem S. Tashkinov 2008-06-13 08:09:14 UTC
Description of problem: After reboot or power off/on cycle my time is always 6
hours ahead of what is in the BIOS.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): vanilla kernel, udev-120-5.20080421git.fc9.i386

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot or power off/on
Actual results: observe the system time to be six hours ahead of the real
present time

Expected results: the system date/time in sync with the HW date/time

Additional info: On Fedora 8 everything worked fine. 

cat /etc/sysconfig/clock

md5sum /etc/localtime (which is Asia/Yekaterinburg)
ea4a51f79de73205bfbc875f32a3d2ce  /etc/localtime

cat /etc/adjtime (BIOS (battery) works just fine)
0.000000 1213342634 0.000000

I have created this script to sync the time (not to alter system init scripts):

cat /etc/sysconfig/modules/time.modules

#! /bin/sh

echo "Current  time: `date`"
echo "HW clock time: `/sbin/hwclock`"
/sbin/hwclock --hctosys
echo "Current  time: `date`"
echo "HW clock time: `/sbin/hwclock`"

as this script starts _after_ udev, I can clearly see that udev does _not_
restore the time. File /dev/rtc is present.

ls -l /dev/rtc
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 10, 135 2008-06-13 19:38 /dev/rtc

cat /proc/driver/rtc
rtc_time        : 14:03:43
rtc_date        : 2008-06-13
rtc_epoch       : 1900
alarm           : 00:00:00
DST_enable      : no
BCD             : yes
24hr            : yes
square_wave     : no
alarm_IRQ       : no
update_IRQ      : no
periodic_IRQ    : no
periodic_freq   : 1024
batt_status     : okay

I will attach my kernel configuration (note that in Fedora 1-8 everything worked
