Re: [nslu2-linux] hwclock takes ~1hr, increases boot time. How to replace the battery?
- Changing the battery is a simple task :)
You will need to open the NSLU2 ...see "instructions" "step 1" [at above url]
...then, right in front of your eyes will be a big obvious lithium
battery - just like the one on your PC motherboard :) It is a
"CR2032" and you can buy them pretty much anywhere [the battery can
be seen clearly in the photo for step-6] :) ...pay the extra for a
good quality one ;)
