NTP on Debian reporting 95 years in the future – Part 3: Community

If you haven’t read part 1 yet, make sure you start there.

Hooray! I am not alone, and it does indeed appear to be a Pine64-specific issue. That means I’m not crazy. Or at least, this issue doesn’t prove my craziness.

Looking at martinayotte‘s suggestions, since he seems to have been through what I’m going through right now…

[email protected]:/boot# grep CONFIG_FSL_ERRATUM_A008585 /boot/config-4.14.26 
# CONFIG_FSL_ERRATUM_A008585 is not set

Okay, so just in case they fixed it already, let’s just try…

Hmm, it seems apt doesn’t like time travelers like me. So … [le gasp]…

[email protected]:/boot# reboot
Connection to 10.0.0.155 closed by remote host.

Wait for it….

[email protected]:~$ ssh [email protected]
ssh: connect to host 10.0.0.155 port 22: No route to host

Like trying to play my 8-track cassettes in a Blu-Ray player, apparently some services don’t play nicely 95 years in the future. DHCP is showing locally on the TTY splash screen as 127.0.0.1, and the only way to recover will be to re-flash to a point before the NTP issue struck.

What’s next? Read Part 4:
