get rid of $HWCLOCK setting

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Done

Description

The $HWCLOCK variable in /etc/sysconfig/clock stores information that is redundant with /etc/adjtime's third line. There should be only one place to store that information.

Programs reading /etc/sysconfig/clock:

  • warpclock from mkinitrd
  • /etc/init.d/boot.clock from aaa_base
  • yast2-country

User benefit:

consistency

Any changes required in, e.g. YaST?

AFAIK Jiří had also support for /etc/adjtime in yast2-country.

Yes, it is there already. YaST still reads sysconfig value, but only if /etc/adjtime is not found.
