#3656 closed task (fixed)

util-linux ADJTIME_PATH should be `/var/lib/hwclock/adjtime`

Reported by: ojab Owned by: ken@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.6
Component: Book Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


util-linux installation instructions says ./configure ADJTIME_PATH=/var/lib/hwclock, but in practice it expects path to adjtime file, not directory:

ojab [ ~ ]$ sudo mkdir /var/lib/hwclock/

ojab [ ~ ]$ sudo /sbin/hwclock --systohc

hwclock: Could not open file with the clock adjustment parameters in it (/var/lib/hwclock) for writing: Is a directory

hwclock: Drift adjustment parameters not updated.

Confirmed. grepping for CONFIG_ADJTIME_PATH shows among other things

./[CONFIG_ADJTIME_PATH], "$ADJTIME_PATH", [Path to hwclock adjtime file])

this is new in 2.25.
