I am using CentOS 3.4, a RHEL 3 clone, and after making
changes to the rc.sysinit script and updating modutils
it works. In fact I would say it's working quite
nicely on a 3.0 HT P4 with 1GB memory. I can run both
OSes and get reasonably good performance, with the
exception of the video of course (don't let the OS
probe for the video card either or it will crash windows).

I have a question regarding /dev/rtc. Is there
currently a way to enable it? Can I build a module for it?

    I've just on 0.6.2 coLinux compiled both rtc and genrtc
    modules, the compile and load, but I'm not sure they
    function as expected... cat of /proc/drivers/rtc (I think it
    was) produced results, but again, I don't think they where
    what's expected. This issue deserves some more looking into.

    Hi,

    I wish RTC was set in .config because I am using the
    Asterisk PBX (for tests) and to have conferencing one
    solution is to use rtc_register() on kernel 2.6.

    Even if interrupt aren't 100% reliable, it would help.

    Moving this to an RFE, hopefully this is something we can
    get working/added once we've had a chance to see what effect
    the Linux Kernel Developer's time fixes have on coLinux's
    current time problems.
