NAME

       hwclock - variables that affect the behaviour of the hwclock boot script

DESCRIPTION

       The /etc/default/rcS file contains variable settings in POSIX format:

            VAR=VAL

       Only one assignment is allowed per line.  Comments (starting with '#') are also allowed.

OPTIONS

       The following variables can be set.

       BADYEAR
              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.

       HWCLOCKACCESS
              If  the hardware clock is not accessible, set to no, in which case hwclock will not
              be run.  Otherwise, set to yes.

       HWCLOCKPARS
              Additional options for hwclock.  Unset by default.  For example, this may be use to
              specify the machine hardware clock type for Alphas.

       HCTOSYS_DEVICE
              The  hardware  clock device you want to use.  Defaults to rtc0.  It should probably
              match the CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE kernel config option.
