busybox under the Hurd
Hi, thanks for everyones advice, ive not got networking and debconf
Busybox is a multicall binary that provides a set (about 100) small
common utilities, it is used by the debian-installer to make the root
I disabled some of its features (below) and it compile into a 710KB
static binary, or 162KB dynamic binary.
The following busybox functions DONT compile easily under the Hurd
fbset (doesnt apply to the Hurd)
insmod (doesnt apply to the Hurd)
lsmod (doesnt apply to the Hurd)
rmmod (doesnt apply to the Hurd)
I had to make a few small changes and then everything else compiles, but
i have not tested the functionality.
Busybox could possible be used to make Hurd rescue floppy(s), i dont
know enough about the Hurd boot procedure yet though.
There is a linux busybox deb around somewhere, but its not in the main
archive.. not sure exactly where it is, source is at busybox.lineo.com
