This tip may not always solve the issue but it's good advice when
compiling kernels for virtual machines in any case.
with redhat (& Centos ) guests the following two things have worked for
me every time. Your mileage with other distros may vary..
1/ clock=pit in the kernel options in grub
2/ ensure that the cpuspeed daemon is not started at boot or running on
With centos / RHEL guests I have 100% success when both are done, you
can then use the vmware server option
tools.syncTime = "TRUE"
or you can use ntpd running on the guest
But don't use both or ntpd will get upset about the jumps that vmware
will cause from time to time and the ntpd process will die
Conor, I think we meet in the morning as I suspect you are also doing
the RH300 this week..
