You can work around this by editing the /etc/inittab file, putting the asktimerc command above the one that starts the license manager. This will require manually setting the time when rebooting.
I ran an old Pentium 90 here with that problem for almost six months, before replacing it with a Caldera OpenLinux system, and during that time I had a cron job that wrote out the current time and date to an executable file in /etc hourly, then added a line to /etc/inittab to execute that file before starting the license manager. This allowed unattended reboots. Bill -- INTERNET: bill@Celestial.COM Bill Campbell; Celestial Software LLC UUCP: camco!bill PO Box 820; 6641 E.
