#6152 closed bug (duplicate)

System clock runs slow

Hello, I searched the tickets and was unable to find anything similar to my problem so I hope this isn't a duplicate. I noticed that the system clock lags reality, that is to say it runs slow. If I open up "About this system" it becomes obvious that each second is about 3x as long as it should be, as seen by looking at the time running counter. I am running a fresh install of alpha 2 on a 6-year old Dothan laptop. If I turn off CPU frequency scaling (permanently on high performance) then the seconds on the about system window speed up to an appropriate rate.

Yep, #1993 had been created for that problem, though it's actually not that urgent anymore, since, unlike that ticket description says, current CPUs have a stable TSC.
