Package: busybox-static
Version: 1:0.60.2-3.1
Severity: normal

I'm trying to build a boot CD using initrd and busybox as a shell. The
initrd contains :

> cd initrd.mnt; find . -type f

(where all the executables are links to busybox).
Here is the file /linuxrc :



mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /newroot

cd newroot
pivot_root . initrd

mount -t proc proc /proc
mount -t devfs devfs /dev
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp

tar zxf tmp.tar.gz
/sbin/depmod -a

exec /sbin/init

I boot using 'init=/linuxrc' so that linuxrc gets PID 1.

/sbin/init is a real file in the new root fs - but busybox will not use
it, it will instead switch to its own version of init, hence not
recognize /etc/inittab.

Workaround : rename /sbin/init as /sbin/realinit, replace the last line
of /linuxrc by 'exec /sbin/realinit', and it works as expected.
