BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e., ls, cp, mv, mount, tar, etc.). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. busybox-static provides you with a statically linked simple stand alone shell that provides all the utilities available in BusyBox. This package is intended to be used as a rescue shell, in the event that you screw up your system. Invoke "busybox sh" and you have a standalone shell ready to save your system from certain destruction. Invoke "busybox", and it will list the available builtin commands.

    Changelog

    2015-08-19 - Andy Whitcroft <apw@ubuntu.com> busybox (1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) wily; urgency=low * Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #1486231). Remaining changes: - [udeb] Enable chvt, killall, losetup, od, and stat. - test-bin.patch: Move test and friends to /bin. - static-sh-alias.patch: Add static-sh alias name for ash, and install /bin/static-sh symlink to busybox in busybox-static. - Add busybox-initramfs. - Refresh busybox-initramfs config to keep it in sync with the featureset of the other builds. (No changes upstream.) - Enable chpasswd in standard and static builds (needed by LXC). - Move zz-busybox to busybox-initramfs to ensure we get links to all the tools we need, stop shipping it anywhere else. - Prefer busybox commands over klibc commands where there is duplication.

    2015-03-04 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org> busybox (1:1.22.0-15) unstable; urgency=medium [ Michael Gilbert ] * Fix CVE-2014-9645: modprobe accepts paths as modules (closes: #776186).

    2014-11-14 - Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> busybox (1:1.22.0-14) unstable; urgency=low * one more attempt to fix the glibc build-depend for #769190, now using versioned build-dependency on libc-dev-bin which is named this way on all architectures (unlike libc6|libc6.1|libc0.1|libc0.3)

    2014-11-12 - Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> busybox (1:1.22.0-13) unstable; urgency=medium * really fix #769190 the hard way, by build-conflicting with all arch-specific names of libc with version <2.19-12 (Closes: #769190) * check if glibc can produce working statically linked binaries by performing a getpwnam("root") call before building (#754813)

    2014-11-12 - Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> busybox (1:1.22.0-12) unstable; urgency=medium * fix the previous changelog entry (wrong bug# was "fixed" and typos) * ensure we build against non-broken glibc (>=2.19-12) (Closes: #769190)

    2014-11-11 - Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> busybox (1:1.22.0-11) unstable; urgency=medium * fix the built-using generation in the previous upload -- did not work correctly for != 1 dependency and #588505 in dpkg

    2014-11-11 - Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> busybox (1:1.22.0-10) unstable; urgency=high * lzop-add-overflow-check-CVE-2014-4607.patch (Closes: #768945) * add Built-Using control field for -static, deriving it from regular build (this will be glibc) (Closes: #768876) * install only arch/indep deb as requested by binary-arch or binary-indep target. This fixes a long-standing lintian error, when package build always produces busybox-syslogd package which is arch:all and should not be built on a buildd.

    2015-08-07 - Andy Whitcroft <apw@ubuntu.com> busybox (1:1.22.0-9ubuntu2) wily; urgency=medium * Move zz-busybox to busybox-initramfs to ensure we get links to all the tools we need, stop shipping it anywhere else. (LP: #1481733) * Prefer busybox commands over klibc commands where there is duplication.

    2014-10-27 - Michael Vogt <michael.vogt@ubuntu.com> busybox (1:1.22.0-9ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=low * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes: - [udeb] Enable chvt, killall, losetup, od, and stat. - test-bin.patch: Move test and friends to /bin. - static-sh-alias.patch: Add static-sh alias name for ash, and install /bin/static-sh symlink to busybox in busybox-static. - Add busybox-initramfs. - Refresh busybox-initramfs config to keep it in sync with the featureset of the other builds. - Enable chpasswd in standard and static builds (needed by LXC).
