Yes, it's a kernel option which you can enable, called Real Time Clock. Look
in your kernel config (cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep CONFIG_RTC). You
also need to create /dev/rtc, just look up the major/minor numbers in
devices.txt in the kernel documentation. IIRC the lfs-faq also mentions
Unsubscribe: send email to listar at linuxfromscratch.org
and put 'unsubscribe blfs-support' in the subject header of the message
