           Summary: busybox 1.2.1 is old and broken -- 1.7.2 works fine
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: 2007.2
          Platform: Neo1973
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Applications & Dependencies
        AssignedTo: mickey at vanille-media.de
        ReportedBy: cwixon at usa.net
                CC: buglog at lists.openmoko.org

Openmoko images and builds include busybox 1.2.1, but the command 'which' (and
who knows what else) is broken in that crufty old version of busybox:

$ which ls
*** glibc detected *** which: free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x000c4058 ***

Here's how busybox 1.2.1 is apparently selected:

    openmoko.conf requires . . .
        angstrom-2007.1.conf, which in turn includes . . .
            angstrom-2007-preferred-versions.inc, which specifies . . .
                busybox 1.2.1

Busybox 1.7.2 is much newer, builds without issues, and (at least) 'which' seems
to work much better.  angstrom-2008.1.conf specifies this newer version, but
unless/until openmoko adopts that entire configuration, consider adding:

    PREFERRED_VERSION_busybox ?= "1.7.2"

to openmoko.conf.
