Not true.


WFM, not that I ever need "recovery procedures".

You are fortunate.

People that double boot, specially when the other system is Windows,
who insists on the CMOS clock being localtime, often trash the adjtime
file contents. As a result, the clock shifts several hours on every
boot (maybe not an integer number of hours).

The cure on those cases was to set the system clock manually, transfer
contents to cmos clock, and then erase the adjtime file, in the
knowledge that rebooting would set it up correctly.

Now instead I'll have (often it is me who guides these people) to tell
them a procedure to recreate the file correctly, for people that do
not even know if the cmos is running local or utc time or why that is
important.
