Comment 36 for bug 43745

I just installed Ubuntu 2.6.15-26-386 #1 PREEMPT Thu Aug 3 02:52:00 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux on a DESKTOP Dell Optiplex GX620.

The hwclock command doesn't work. The system says "select() to /dev/rtc to wait for clock tick timed out". Also I had some pretty weird messages during installation about my battery being low; not sure if that's related.

I think it's all the same problem, and I bet it's in /dev/rtc.
