Definitely the best advice. However it doesn't explain why his system
apparently fails to retrieve the current date & time from CMOS on boot.
Mine always have, though CMOS clocks rarely keep good time, so using NTP
after network connection after boot I see initial corrections of several
seconds usually .. still it's better than having all your log timestamps
screwed after reboot until NTP does its thing.
Richard: are you running UTC or local time in CMOS? If the latter, does
the file /etc/wall_cmos_clock exist?
