Are those "clock problems" by any chance a *mean* drift? (on the
order of seconds per minute) I had that problem, and BenH suggested
that I comment out two lines in pmac_time.c (via_calibrate_decr () in
an if statement and the following line). That worked like a charm.
That said, it looks like maybe he's fixed it in the 2.4.7-ben0. I
haven't yet tried booting it, but I see that there's an extra if
clause that was not there before.
If I've told you once, I've told you once
And once is all that you needed.
