I upgraded a fairly fresh install of Slink to Potato (of about 16 hours
ago). Since then the system has gone mad (seemingly random dates within
1970 are reported). I don't think this is a problem with the date command
as pppd also reports negative times and generally fails to work. I'm
using the 2.0.36 jensen kernel from the CD.
Moving to a 2.2.6 kernel seems to fix the date problems but due to
multiple oopses 2.2.6 is unusable. In fact, I'll only use it to get a
working PPP when I need to download some more .debs.
