Re: Busybox in Debian
Looks like it is used to run DHCP / BOOTP / RARP
on several interfaces, including a possibility
to run it on _all_ existing interfaces
(excluding loopback and point-to-point).
I see how this can be useful during boot.
It's just mini-ps. Proliferation of reinvented tools
with slightly different names.
This is "rm -rf -- FILE". Should not be necessary.
Writes "maj:min:offset" to /sys/power/resume.
Looks like this is support for resume from disk?
This tool is doing this:
Usage: exec run-init [-d caps] [-c consoledev] /real-root /sbin/init [args]
* run_init(realroot, consoledev, drop_caps, init, initargs)
* This function should be called as the last thing in kinit,
* from initramfs, it does the following:
* - Delete all files in the initramfs;
* - Remounts /real-root onto the root filesystem;
* - Chroots;
* - Drops comma-separated list of capabilities;
* - Opens /dev/console;
* - Spawns the specified init program (with arguments.)
* On failure, returns a human-readable error message.
There is the "switch_root" tool in util-linux which does the
crucial part of this functionality - deleting / remounting / chrooting.
It is in bbox too.
If you want "resume" and "ipconfig" in bbox, I can do that.
