Attachments: adds support for busybox.links in genkernel

Description David Bryson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-01 13:14:20 UTC
genkernel has a staticly defined list of busybox applications it links no matter what the compiled applications are.  A list of the compiled applications is produced at the end of the busybox build-cycle.  This patch adds support for using this list to create the symlinks present on the initrd.  This way, every compilation of busybox can have all the proper symlinks created.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

will be attaching a patch momentarily

Comment 2 David Bryson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-01 15:54:02 UTC
there is a bug currently when initrd-modules are enabled
for some reason modprobe overwrites the busybox executable, and I'm not sure why.  As soon as I fix it I'll post an updated patch.
