/sbin/busybox not statically linked
Last modified: 2008-12-13 10:05:14 EST
Description of problem: Busybox is not statically linked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): busybox-1.10.3-3.fc10.i386
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. file /sbin/busybox
Actual results: /sbin/busybox: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
Expected results: something similar, except statically linked.
Additional info: Note that the rpm info says busybox is statically linked:
rpm -qi busybox ==> Summary : Statically linked binary providing simplified versions of system commands
busybox-1.10.3-4.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
busybox-1.10.3-4.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update busybox'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2008-10800
Fixed in busybox-1.10.3-4.fc10.
$ ldd /sbin/busybox
not a dynamic executable
$ rpm -q busybox
Thanks. (Being statically linked is important for embedded users.)
