    Default Missing /dev/rtc [SOLVED]

    /dev/rtc nor rtc0 exists, this is not a paramount prob. However, as a n00b I can't figure out weather this is a udev-problem or a module-loading problem.

    I have tested this on more than one computer. There is no /dev/rtc on any of them. To me this is not a biggie, but it could bite someone else somewhere awkward later.

    It could also be the distro sensing my n00bianism and hence throwing challenges my way.

    Could someone confirm having this problem? And also, any suggestions as to how I could fix this?

    Yeah, it doesn't exist on my system either. You can get /dev/rtc by running:
    Code:
    # modprobe rtc-cmos
    If you want it to load on start-up you can just type:
    Code:
    # echo "rtc-cmos" >> /etc/modules
