I am use to old hardware (i486DX) having problems keeping time on the
hardware clock. But isn't the system clock a separate thing? I am losing
about 4 min on the system clock for every 10 minutes of real time. I've
googled around for clock drift information. What I found suggests that
a system under heavy load with the 2.6.x kernel on certain hardware
might show this symptom. I've yet to try it, but I've read that adding
"clock=pit noapic nolapic" to the boot parameters should fix it.
Is this something that will affect an LFS build? I don't like the idea
of finding out towards the end that it will. That is my main concern.
Should I ignore the clock issue? Is this something I should concern
myself about? Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks in Advance,
