      Hi all,
      is it possible to set the hardware clock on a nslu2 ?
      I'm using Linux version 2.6.18-5-ixp4xx , I seem to remember
      some thing saying it couldn't be done on earlier kernels

      Thanks

        Can't imaging why. Perhaps there's some confusion about the earlier kernels
        that had troubles with clock accuracy? (Or maybe there's a specific Debian
        kernel issue rather than a general kernel problem?)
