Hi,Take a look at /proc/interrupts. Is the timer interrupt
Over the past few weeks I've been having major problems keeping time on
my machine with kernel 2.6.5. At first I thought it was a problem with
ntpd but as it turns out it's my kernel.
The problem became evident while copying vast amounts of data across to
my machine. While I was copying data to it via scp my random
Xscreensaver kicked in displaying the clock and the first thing I
noticed was that the clock was advancing at a rapid rate. At the same
time I could not type anything as it would just repeat everything I
typed 10 fold. Basically the whole system behaved like it was on
steroids while I was copying to it and by the time I had finished
copying the clock was 2hrs ahead of time.
