In bash, the following works for setting the date from a UNIX timestamp ( seconds from the epoch ):

date +%s -s @`date +%s`

In Busybox, this does not work. How can I do the same for the date command with Busybox? Thanks.

date @`date +%s`

I don't think it's got anything to do with bash.

Busybox's date command is a lightweight version of the more classic GNU/FSF date
