OS cannot seem to access the hwclock:
[email protected]:/etc/init.d$ sudo /sbin/hwclock -r --debug hwclock from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 hwclock: Open of /dev/rtc failed, errno=2: No such file or directory. No usable clock interface found. Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.
This is what it looks like from my Ubuntu box:
[email protected]:/media/external-ma/Music$ sudo /sbin/hwclock -r --debug [sudo] password for chris: hwclock from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 Using /dev interface to clock. Assuming hardware clock is kept in local time. Waiting for clock tick... ...got clock tick Time read from Hardware Clock: 2012/07/13 16:38:50 Hw clock time : 2012/07/13 16:38:50 = 1342193930 seconds since 1969 Fri 13 Jul 2012 16:38:50 BST -0.236127 seconds

I am going to write a small script to check a ntp server (probably a few) for current date/time.
