Here it comes. Not everything is checked, rewritten, because I first copied another version and adapted afterwards for my needs. Check default, that is working. All those using using #!/bin/busybox <some command> are working, tested (I wanted to enforce the busybox usage, because I had the "original" stuff too. As you'll see, I had problems with devfsd (this is "original", not busybox version, because I could not adapt the /etc/devfsd.conf file yet for busybox's devfsd). Any help? There is also another problem with busybox's devfsd, it works only with "original" modprobe, not busybox one, if MODLOAD is used (autoloading of modules). I have subscribed to the busybox list (too), maybe I'll some help there. Also I have to check how it works with msh (to support uClinux too) Peter -- Peter S.
