Hi All,

I've a Olinuxino iMX233 MAXI, it was working fine before couple of days.. now on every bootup I'm getting following error...

mxs-rtc mxs-rtc.0: setting system clock to 1970-01-01 00:01:36 UTC (96)

I've made a new sdcard with arch linux as well.. but no success....

As I'm newbie in linux.. Please suggest me the solution on the above error...
What could be the possible reasons.



There are several potential reasons:
- the partition on your SD card is broken, empty or otherwise misbehaving
- you are passing a bad root parameter to the kernel
- you are using ext4 (or some other fancy) filesystem which the kernel doesn't support
- some other reason

Can you access the SD card with another computer?

Cristian Jann has written some rather good tutorials about OLinuXino (and Linux in general). They can be found from
