    Cool hwclock - BIOS clock not ticking

    I know I have asked this before and solved it in other versions of Ubuntu - BUT - again the BIOS clock will not tick, the system won't boot past GRUB (will boot if manually choosing a kernel)

    I just can't remember how I fixed it last time. I just need Intrepid to work until Lucid comes out of Beta.

    I remember that it was a simple command, but just can't seem to find it on the forums again.

    wish I had bookmarked it last time.

    Any help appreciated.

    Intrepid - 2.6.27-17-generic - 64 bit -

    consequently - the laptop won't wake from sleep mode either

    Thanks in advance
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Cool Re: hwclock - BIOS clock not ticking

    Fixed

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh
    add --directisa

    to the line

    Code:
    HWCLOCKPARS=
    so it looks like this

    Code:
    HWCLOCKPARS=--directisa
    I rebooted and seems to be working correctly.

    After logging in I checked the hwclock by

    Code:
    sudo hwclock
    and it printed to screen the correct output without timing out.
