Installed Fedora 8 from Live CD image onto a Dell Power Edge 2600 Server.
The disks are setup in raid 5 with a custom but typical load using boot
and LVM partition.
During boot it mentions it doesnt like clocksource, setting to HPET, but
otherwise no major problems booting. I have set the clocksource=hpet and
that appears to run without issue. Twice it has reported bad blocks
on root during boot, not sure why the system is usually shutdown clean
as far as I can tell..
Once the system is up, the system clock jumps ahead 4-5 minutes every so often.
if I run date randomly a few seconds after each other I can see
the time jump 4 minutes, but if I run hwclock the clock runs as expected.
Of course during shutdown this fast moving system clock appears
to get set back to the hwclock.
I have tried every Kernel option I can think off, has been suggested etc, hence I
am asking here for suggestions I may have missed.
I have ntpd turned off.
