Michael Tokarev <firstname.lastname@example.org> (08/07/2012): > #680342 - http://bugs.debian.org/679377 > xargs applet does not implement basic POSIX-specified features Question: is it expected it's not available in the initramfs? Apparently that was the case already for alpha1, and is still the case now. (I wanted to check whether that -0 thingy was working as expected.) > #406114 - http://bugs.debian.org/406114 > d-i: having a tool like ping > > This is a wishlist bug. The change merely enables ping applet > (adding 613 bytes to the executable) for Debian Installer > environment.

Looks pretty much OK to me. > unblock busybox/1:1.20.0-5 Release team: ACK on the d-i side, urgent appreciated while you're at it. Mraw, KiBi.
