Description toast+misc 2015-12-03 23:36:15 UTC
busybox-1.24.1 has been stabilized.
Still requires ::musl patches.
Please bump busybox-1.24.1::musl.

It would be cool to have this fixed in tree.

It seems to suffice to turn off CONFIG_EXTRA_COMPAT,

need to be turned off because they depend on GNU regex.

musl does not support utmp/wtmp/utmpx/wtmpx.

musl does not ship with rpc headers.

Actually bug 551614 already concerns busybox on musl.

I turned off the UTMP applet.  I know that sucks, but a lot of uClibc and glibc-isms have made it in there and it'll need some clean upstream work.  It shouldn't b hard, but I just don't have time until exams are over.

IFPLUGD now works so its back on.

the other gnu regex stuff is still off.

Yep it should be fixed there.

See for related
discussion on the busybox list. (utmp has never worked on musl.)
