[openFATE 312407] switch off boot.clock
Feature changed by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Feature #312407, revision 4
Title: switch off boot.clock

- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization:

Nowadays the kernel sets the system time from rtc and a potential
local/utc offset is applied in the initrd already. The only task left
for boot.clock is to adjust the clock drift. That's a rather advanced
feature not known nor appreciated by the standard auto logging in user.
Network installs have ntp enabled anyways. Therefore boot.clock should
be switched off by default to have one less script to execute. Anyone
who needs the clock drift feature can insserv boot.clock manually.

Business case (Partner benefit): faster boot
