Strange kernel log message: kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 55 to 6

Strange kernel log message: kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 55 to 6

Post by YEUNG WA » Sat, 05 Jun 1999 04:00:00



I have installed the Redhat 6.0 (kernel-2.2.5) to a dual CPU Intel PC with
SCSI disk. I found that some strange messages quite offen come out in the
system log /var/log/messages every minute like:

Jun  4 07:32:59 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 51 to 2
Jun  4 07:34:00 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 51 to 4
Jun  4 07:35:01 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 51 to 5
Jun  4 08:09:05 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 58 to 9
Jun  4 08:10:06 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 58 to 10
Jun  4 08:11:07 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 58 to 11
Jun  4 08:12:08 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 58 to 12
Jun  4 08:35:11 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 54 to 5
Jun  4 08:36:12 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 54 to 6
Jun  4 08:37:13 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 54 to 7
Jun  4 08:38:14 hqlxcl01 kernel: set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 54 to 8

Do anyone know the reason, does it indicate some problem in the kernel or
hardware?

I also installed the same version of Redhat 6.0 to single CPU with IDE disk
but I don't see such messages.

Thanks
