<div> Here where I work we received a G4 computer and I started to install a Gentoo 2006.0. The computer is a G4 2 CPU's 512MB of memory 2 HD, I started to install Gentoo 2006.0 from stage 1 and everything gone well. I installed with cpu flag as G4 and O2.
<div> But when the computer restarted a problem appeared with hwclock, when I execute the hwclock an error appear. The error is something like: "select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out" and the date in Linux stay 1970, the bios time is correctly because when I boot the Gento CD the hwclock work perfectly. I already recompiled the kernel with many options but nothing solve the problem.
<div> I believe that the problem is with some kernel option that I forgot or some patch, because in the Gentoo CD the hwclock works perfectly. What kernel option or patch can be solve the problem? Hints?</div>
<div> Best regards.</div>
