Ie, the «HWCLOCK="-u"» line has dissapeared - in two different computers

The variable is important, it is sourced in "/etc/init.d/ntp" (script
which still exists).

The the "/etc/init.d/ntp" script is buggy. It has to use /etc/adjtime.


Ok, so you mean that "HWCLOCK" has dissapeared, and instead ntp has to use "/etc/adjtime" (but it does not). However, how does "/etc/init.d/ntp" know if the system keeps the cmos on UTC or local time _before_ "/etc/adjtime" is created?

I mean, is the user choice at install time stored somewhere, besides "/etc/adjtime"? Remember that this file has to be deleted completely as a cure to some clock problems, and recreated.
