Description Matt Selsky 2002-03-04 19:52:26 EST
/sbin/busybox should be statically linked, not dynamically linked.

From the source rpm, it looks like the file busybox-static.patch contains the
wrong thing.  I looked at the srpm for busybox-0.51.xxx and it contains what
looks like the proper patch file for static linking.

This breaks anything boot/rescue disk which is relying on busybox not needing
other libraries.

Erik, Jeremy - opinions?  I've never actually touched busybox.  (May be I'm not
the best package owner for it...)

Oops, I left that part out when updating the patch for the new version. 
Building updated version now (0.60-4)
