Hi All,

Running OZ3.5.1, C860. (Gotta love the Zaurus, most flashed tool I own now ;-)

I'm trying to work out exactly what 'sltime' from 'slutils' actually _does_. This filename simply does not come up with ANYTHING relevant on google (apart from changelogs).

I suspect it has something to do with storing the date between a hard reset, something the PXA-255 chipset is apparently incapable of doing (though running under linux one would think that a hard-reset would be rare). I'm assuming this is a general problem with StrongARM in that RTC is reset on any hard-reset?

My questions are: -
1. What is sltime?
2. What does it do when you issue a --set and a --clear

I havn't been able to find any source for it, and performing a strings on it shows that it is possibly writing to NAND.

Under pdaXrom, I'm assuming it was used to store the time. The one bug under pdaXrom is that it kept resetting it to a funny time (I suspect it was setting it back to GMT, and then using the time as if it was local time).

Under OpenZaurus, which does not use it, the date is reset to the beginning of the epoch, 1/1/1970, and of course opie complains bitterly.
