1 hi,
3 I'm using gentoo 2008.0 ~amd64 (and up-to-date). My kernel is compiled
4 with almost everything into modules (using initramfs of course) include
5 rtc-cmos.ko, which is required by hwclock to set time properly. If
6 rtc-coms is loaded, then hwclock will start with no error. but in the
7 depend section of /etc/init.d/hwclock, there is a line
9 before *
11 thus hwclock will start before modules (where I put rtc-cmos
12 in /etc/conf.d/modules), so it will always fail to ajust hwclock.
14 Besides, I'm using networkmanager (using gnome nm-applet) , so there
15 is no /etc/init.d/net.eth* stuff, but ntp-client have a section of
17 need net
19 but at that time when ntp-client start, there is no network avaliable (I
20 always get error will unable to reslove hostname XXX, so at least DNS is
21 not usable at that time, even I put after NetworkManager
22 in /etc/init.d/ntp-client).
24 Any hints? Thanks very much!
