Amiga 3000 desktop w/ _int2 hack, CyberStorm MkIII 060/50, 2 HD's on
the CyberSCSI controller, none on the A3k internal SCSI (doesn't work
w/ CS installed); 64+16+2MB RAM.
System: NetBSD dusty 1.5.1 NetBSD 1.5.1 (DUSTY) #4: Tue Sep 4 00:29:33 IST 2001 root@dusty:/usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/compile/DUSTY amiga
"WARNING: bad date in battery clock" message upon boot. Analysis under
AmigaOS shows that battery backed-up clock has suffered 'Amnesia' in
both shared UNIX/AmigaDOS and AmigaDOS portion.
Boot into AmigaOS, fix 'Amnesia' with SCSIPrefs tool from Aminet, set
clock. Boot into NetBSD - clock setting is fine. Shutdown, boot into
NetBSD again, and then the battery clock date is bad. This is what
makes me think why NetBSDis at fault! The time is reset to the time of
last logout. This problem appeared only after upgrading from a G-Force
040 board to the CS MkIII; the clock battery was replaced about a year
ago, it should be fine. dmesg is available on request.
No idea. Could this be some sort of race?
