Description Matt Selsky 2002-03-05 00:52:26 UTC
/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.
