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