Bug#334672: busybox-static: Using fallback suid method
Greetings. If 'busybox-static' is installed (instead of 'busybox'),
and the system has a kernel from a Debian 'linux-image...' package,
then when the initrd image for the 'linux-image...' package is built
(using by the scripts in the 'initramfs-tools' package), 'busybox-static'
is included in the image, and booting using this image generates *many*
of these 'Using fallback suid method' messages. Thus, the maintainer
of the 'initramfs-tools' package understandably does not want to use
'busybox-static' as an option (either via "Depends:" or "Recommends:")
when installing the 'initramfs-tools' package.
Can you please provide me a time-frame for when this bug might be
addressed? I see that it is now 2 years and 59 days old.
Note also that this issue relates to bug #375568: busybox-static should
include "Provides: busybox".
