Some machines don't have a working realtime clock (RTC) unit, or no
driver for the hardware that does exist. fake-hwclock is a simple set
of scripts to save the kernel's current clock periodically (including
at shutdown) and restore it at boot so that the system clock keeps at
least close to realtime. This will stop some of the problems that may
be caused by a system believing it has travelled in time back to
1970, such as needing to perform filesystem checks at every boot.
On top of this, use of NTP is still recommended to deal with the fake
clock "drifting" while the hardware is halted or rebooting.

Changelog

2016-04-15 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.11) unstable; urgency=medium
* Change the sanity checking behaviour on save. Rather than disallowing
saving a clock prior to the last saved state, now compare to a fixed
date which corresponds to the release of fake-hwclock itself.
Closes: #819019
2016-03-05 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.10) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add a save call to the postinst, to make sure that we save working
time ASAP. Closes: #815833
2015-03-16 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.9) unstable; urgency=medium
* Ensure fake-hwclock runs at shutdown on systemd systems too.
Closes: #779040. Thanks again to Alexandre Detiste for the patch.
* Add more rationale in the man page.
2014-10-01 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add protection around save, don't go backwards unless forced.
Closes: #763589
* Suggest cron-daemon as an alternative to cron
2014-09-06 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Tweak the systemd bits again.
2014-09-05 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes needed)
* Include /lib/lsb/init-functions in the init script
* Add systemd service file and use dh-systemd to install
appropriately. Thanks to Alexandre Detiste for the patch.
Closes: #760446 
2012-05-01 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.5) unstable; urgency=low
* Add man page, provided by Peter Green. Closes: #667580.
2012-02-22 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
* Update Standards-Version.
* Add vcs fields to debian/control.
* Fix debian/fake-hwclock.install to match the move to /sbin; move to
using dh_install.
* Check if we're trying to set the clock backwards. If so, bail unless
we're explicitly told to in a config file. Thanks to Barak
A. Pearlmutter for the idea and (some of) the code. Closes: #661146.
2012-02-22 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
* Really fix the cron job to exit cleanly after package removal.
Closes: #659254
2012-02-20 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
fake-hwclock (0.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Move to /sbin. Closes: #658587
* Stop working in the initramfs, just running at rcS should be
enough. For machines upgrading from v0.1, need to:
+ Re-generate the initramfs to remove the old hook
+ Force installation of an rcS script
Closes: #658590
* Fix the cron job to exit cleanly after package removal.
Closes: #659254
* Reword the Description slightly. Closes: #660610
