           Summary: Consider some defconfig changes for busybox
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Neo1973
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Applications & Dependencies
        AssignedTo: mickey at openmoko.org
        ReportedBy: cwixon at usa.net
                CC: buglog at lists.openmoko.org

I'm copying over my comment #3 from bug #1116, since the basic statement of that
bug is indeed fixed, and this was added later:

The default set of utilities configured by busybox could stand to be
updated.  In 1.9.1, the latest version in the OE repository (and in earlier
versions), the provided (default) defconfig specifies:

  * no 'nice' command (but 'renice' is there);

  * 'xargs' doesn't support the '-0' flag (even though 'find' has '-print0'); and

  * 'find' doesn't have the '-delete' expression

Other changes might also be useful, so I'd encourage a thorough re-evaluation of
all of the default options by someone who knows their stuff.

And to fix part of another bug I submitted (that would be bug #870), I
personally would set "CONFIG_INSTALL_NO_USR=y" so people can mount a memory card
partition at /usr and still allow the boot/init process to complete successfully
without it.
