Title: Real-Time Clock to wakeup system periodically...
Post by: bdc@thinkclock.com on November 29, 2012, 03:08:27 pm
Hello Lub,

I am trying to use Real-Time Clock of Olinuxino Mini to wakeup my system periodically for sensor measurements and go back to power save mode. I couldn't find any literature about how to access RTC of the board through Archlinux.

Could you provide any help please.

Best Regards,

Babu

Hello Babu,

This use of the RTC for wake-up is currently not supported in the Archlinux kernel. Keep an eye on the forum for kernel updates. There might be workarounds but my advice is to post in the forums: https://www.olimex.com/forum/index.php?board=1.0.

Best regards,

Hey Babu,

I happen to have the same issue. Did you figure out a way to wake the system up automatically? Did you use the RTC-MOD module?

Thanks,
