    Unhappy Kernel Clock running fast


    I am using AT91SAM9260 and running Linux 2.6.27 on it. Once i sync the Kernel clock and cmos clock with the reference clock and leave it for 1 day, i see a drift of nearly 8-10 sec. The kernel clock is running faster. How can i correct this?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Clock drift is not an uncommon problem. If there is a network available then I use NTP to keep the clock in sync with universal time. However, you can also use the system command hwclock to adjust for drift as necessary.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
