I am using BusyBox 1.00 and UBOOT.
I have recently enabled getty and login features and have noticed that 
the environment variables that are set in the boot environment; e.g. 
ipaddr=192.168.50.202, hostname=myTargetName; not set in the shell 
environemt. They were there before the addition of getty and login features.
Why is this?
Can they be exported to the user shell without specifically setting them 
again? Or do I have to "re"set them?

TIA!
