    Hi carlostico,


    This is a Linux kernel issue - introduced in 2.6.38.


    As background the Warp uses Linux version 2.8.39 and a RTC in the m41t80 family (cat /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/name).
    Here is one reference to the specifics in case you were interested.

    If the hwclock functionality is needed a kernel patch would be necessary.
