Busybox notes

Some notes from my busybox implementation:

  • for fortran support –enable-languages=f77 in gcc.
  • after compilation make the soft link : ln -s /path-to-g77 /bin/g77
  • inittab :: wait:-/bin/sh for automated login
  • no Correct Hostname value in this file, so manualy do /bin/hostname ‘the_name’
  • no Snapshot use in buildroot compilation – uclibc,busybox.
  • bash :: echo -e ‘\E[num1;num2m{text}’ – for:back :: 31 red – 32 green – 36 cyan – 37 white – 40 black
  • changes in packages settings for buildroot are done in package/…
  • busybox :: enable_renice
