Dunno... 2.6.26 isn't in Etch, so this doesn't fix Etch :/
Meanwhile, 2.6.18 was out in Etch, and then 2.6.24 in Etch'n half. I'm
currently running the latter.
After spending more time investigating, I concluded the "standard" rtc
driver is at least partly broken in those kernels (and probably 2.6.26 too)
on many motherboards (Asrock 775i65g here at home, Dell Optiplex 320DT at
work). Is it the one based on HPET ? Because, a working solution better than
"--direct-isa" is to replace it _at_boot_ with genrtc (listing it
in /etc/modules + blacklist rtc in /etc/modprobe.d/somefile + reboot). So
the genrtc works perfect (with hwclock, chrony etc), but what is it based
Hope this helps,
