RFE: build busybox static for subpackage initrd and add mount by label
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
With the attached patches it is possible to build busybox static with
an extended mount, which can mount by label. This would allow us to
drop nash and use busybox for the initrd.

the .config for busybox to build busybox-initrd
FWIW, I'd rather look at making it so that there's only one busybox
binary instead of three. Having it static definitely makes sense and
I can't see a convincing reason to have completely different config sets.
static is the key, as the other configurations haven't been static!
Beware of glibc getuid() and friends. They need the dynamic .so's at
Busy box is now build static
