> Hi, I see *exactly* your problems with my PCEngines Alix 2D3 boards.
Yes, mine have (working) batteries, so they only need setting once and then stay corrected despite power loss. I have a couple of hundred boards and I don't measure the exact number, but say 1/4 to 1/3 exhibit this effect before first initialisation, until they have a warm reboot (they remain fine after initialisation)
- I haven't seen any exhibit this after the clock is set once
- Its at least partly kernel related because literally there can be no /dev/rtc device and inability to set the hwclock
I guess no one would likely spot this if it only happens occasionally on uninitialised RTC? Most people either have a battery or know that they don't have a battery and hence don't set the RTC...
Good luck chasing it down
