Section: Debian Administrator's Manual (5)
Updated: Feb 2012
The /etc/default/rcS file contains variable settings in POSIX format:
Only one assignment is allowed per line. Comments (starting with '#') are also allowed.
The following variables can be set.
- This is used to specify that the hardware clock is incapable of storing years outside the range of 1994-1999. Set to yes if the hardware is broken or no if working correctly.:
- If the hardware clock is not accessible, set to no, in which case hwclock will not be run. Otherwise, set to yes.:
- Additional options for hwclock. Unset by default. For example, this may be use to specify the machine hardware clock type for Alphas.:
- The hardware clock device you want to use. Defaults to rtc0. It should probably match the CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE kernel config option.:
