comment Cron not working at startup, but works if restarted?
Exactly right! Our system boots with a time in 2004, and cron seems to get confused when the time eventually gets set correctly. Made cron last in startup, after time had settled, and all good.

Worked! Made cron start last, and apparently the time stuff was done by then. Hey post your advice as an answer so I can mark it as answered, and give you the credit... gotta build up that reputation! Thanks!

Definitely yes - the unit has no RTC, so it goes out and gets the current time - so that's likely the problem? Any ideas on a solution?

Looks like it has: root@SL1000-1103DC:~# ps | grep cron 1245 root 1800 R /usr/sbin/cron 1962 root 2892 S grep cron Also I see it in the startup log

comment How can I reboot my Linux system every 60 seconds?
Ok - finally got cron installed - but it's not working at startup, only if I restart it? I'm going to post as a separate question. Thanks!

comment How can I reboot my Linux system every 60 seconds?
As far as I can tell /etc/rc.local is not getting called, only the things in /etc/rc5.d get called. Maybe something about this distro? Here's my attempt: root@SL1000-1103DC:~# cd /etc root@SL1000-1103DC:/etc# ls -l rc.local -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23 Jun 16 13:47 rc.local root@SL1000-1103DC:/etc# cat rc.local echo "Hello rc.local"

comment How can I find the cause of clock drift on a custom embedded system?
@Nils The G25 does not have two 16 bit counters, only one. The other counter register seems to add some increment after 20 minutes or so. So the patch avoids reading the other counter. The G45 does have both counters.

@Nils - yes just finished initial testing, took about 20 minutes to demonstrate the original problem

comment How can I find the cause of clock drift on a custom embedded system?
Thanks for the insight. The clock=jiffies did work for me as a workaround. The actual answer is we missed an Atmel supplied patch for the 2.6 kernel that patched the tcb_clksrc.c for the SAM9X5 processors. Just too tired to see it last night, but now it's pretty obvious.

comment How small can an embedded Linux file system get?
Thanks - I do need to support kernel modules. Right now I am using the a given init - but I am very new at this. Do either of you have a favorite tutorial for building a file system? Leave as an answer and I will close this out
