I am having a strange problem with setting the alarm on a Biostar M7NCD
(nForce 2 / Award bios) on Fedora 5 (MythDora distribution).
I can echo a date out to /proc/acpi/alarm ok. I can then cat and it looks
However, when the system shuts down it doesn't wake up. When I start it
manually, I see the date is "2006-00-00 09:58:00". I thought the problem
was related to the Fedora 6 issue on
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/ACPI_Wakeup during halt to reset the
clock. So I put that in the halt script:
==> ACPITIME=`cat /proc/acpi/alarm`
[ -x /sbin/hwclock ] && action $"Syncing hardware clock to system
time" /sbin/hwclock $CLOCKFLAGS
==> echo "$ACPITIME" > /proc/acpi/alarm
I added a cat /proc/acpi/alarm > /home/mythtv/alarm to verify it reset it
ok. It does show that:
Syncing hardware clock to system time [ OK ]
But after booting manually, it shows date as 2006-00-00 09:58:00. Any ideas
what I could try?
