20 years into the future

Hi folks !

I have my AXPCI33 up and running Linux (2.0.30), but I happen to have a
slight Y20 problem.
According to the ARC, the system time and date agrees with my wristwatch,
i.e. somewhen in February 1999.
But "clock" under Linux returns the date as February 2019. (OK, "clock -A"
does return the correct date. But I don't want to use an alias.)
Using dejanews I found a tip to put the line "CLOCKMODE=ARC" into the
/etc/sysinit/clock. Didn't help :-(

Any further ideas ?
Pete

Be sure your kernel is compiled with enhanced realtime support.

try adding

UTC=false
ARC=true

to /etc/sysconfig/clock.
