Missing RTC interface on Clearfog base (CU166)


Booting and shutting down, I see errors in the log similar to:

No usable clock interface found.
hwclock: Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.

(can’t remember exact wording as I have no access just now)

Digging deeper, I found no /dev/rtc* nodes, and looking at the kernel config I see that

CONFIG_RTC_DRV_ARMADA38X is not set, which I’m guessing is the root of the problem.

Would it be possible to request that future kernels include the Armada38x RTC as a module?



yes, I think so.

Please file a bug for this (your login credentials work on https://bugzilla.ipfire.org/ as well), so it does not get lost in the noise. Currently, the next scheduled kernel update is for Core Update 169.

Thanks, and best regards,
Peter Müller

Thank you Peter! Bug reported.
