Whew,

My linux clock on my laptop runs a good three times faster than it should...

Or maybe I've just been sucked into a time portal.

It works alright in the bios. Any way to fix this?

Is that fast as in offset a little, or fast as in it runs too quickly?
If it runs too quickly is it realted to this? https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-359420-highlight-.html

Ah, well it runs too quickly.

I must have missed that post earlier :oops:

I'll consider this threat solved for now, and reopen it if the other thread doesn't have my answer.

Thanks!

Well, I gave it a shot, but nothing has changed.

In fact, it seems like linux is changing the bios clock rather than vice-versa. I set up hc syncing, and now whenever I reboot, the bios is set to the linux clock.. which is running about 3/4 faster. The seconds in the bios are correct. Just the hour changes.

I'm syncing with NTP, and it also fails to change the time.

I gain about three hours every hour. Weird.

Wow, that is wierd. So the seconds are always right, but the hours are wrong? Just checking to see if I read that right.

Hey, thanks letting me know about this post. I'll give it a shot.

It's weird. The software clock is going superspeed. I can watch the seconds tick away three times faster than they should, and the hours just fly by. Then, when I check the bios, the clock is operating at the correct speed.. but the hours have changed to whatever the software clock says. I change it, reboot, and at reboot it reverts to the software clock.

Strange.

Thanks for your continued help. I'll keep working on it.

Well, I resolved the hour issue... which was merely a result of my own idiocy (having created the incorrect symlink).

The seconds issue is still vexing. As I sit here, I can watch the seconds tick away a good three times faster than they should, even though the seconds in the bios are completely accurate.

Anyone have any ideas?
