Inconsistency with adjtime

Reported by: Chris Staub Owned by: lfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.6-systemd
Component: Book Version: systemd
Severity: normal Keywords:


In the systemd book, the instructions to configure the system clock describe creating /etc/adjtime, which is used by systemd. However, the instructions for Util-linux still say to edit the source to change "/etc/adjtime" to "/var/lib/hwclock/adjtime" to match the FHS.

Configuration files go in /etc from what I know, so I don't see any big deal. I have no idea what util-linux stores in it, but there's nothing in /var/lib/hwclock here. What would be the proposed solution?

In the hwclock case, it's a file that saves runtime data to it.

In the systemd-timedated case, it's a file that servers as a configuration file.

So in that case, the instructions are correct.

Variable data go to /var while configuration files go to /etc. We can speak of two different files here.
