I finally defeated the sucker in single combat and got the info I needed out
Currently triaging. Here's how far I made it before going to dinner. :)
Steve Ballmer: Innovation! Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
-------------- next part --------------
550 MAP_SHARED in insmod causes problems in uClinux
svn 12711 (me, today)
529 Syntax (macro definition) error stops build
svn 12715 (me, today)
498 mount loop device support broken
This one's wasn't our bug in the first place. He had devfs support enabled,
which breaks stuff.
494 ash prompt corruption
svn 11650 (vodz, 2005-09-26)
568 vi displays inserted text incorrectly.
svn 11477 (pgf, 2005-09-16)
406 1.01 won't build with shadow passwords disabled
Not a problem in 1.1
Fix this (or confirm already fixed):
585 gzip enters infinite busy loop when decompressing a corrupted file
bb_full_read() is evil.
496 Gunzip do not report correclty when uncompressing a corrupted gz file
Similar to 585.
577 Two minor format string problems in ln (private)
576 inetd does not set argv
549 Wrong SUID handling when invoking busybox binary directly
Definitely fix, but the patch is wrong. The busybox multiplexer needs
suid, but check_suid should be called when it runs the real applet.
547 tar archive corruption when packing unreadable files
Two fixes: get the error code right and check access _before_ writing the
543 switch_root fails
Sigh, my fault. Check in the right version.
534 "mount -t auto " broken
You _allowed_ to specify "-t auto"? Who knew?
531 Several link errors when creating flat executable file
Yeah. Fix this.
530 Build of telnet.c fails with older compilers
488 init does not reap zombies when running actions
486 busybox wget prepends a '/' to ftp URL's pathname, unlike GNU wget
485 ftpget fetches 0 bytes if ftp server does not support SIZE command
Check, but we _really_ need to unify the wget/ftpget implementation in 1.2.
468 rmmod does not report failure
467 rmmod does not handle -w and -f flags
461 PATCH: route accept bit netmask (x.x.x.x/netmask)
449 Uninitialized variable in hush shell
428 Extra space character (0x20) is added to last string option
421 httpd applet in non-inet mode creates zombies
415 vlock accepts any passwd when using shadow
410 memory leak in coreutils/md5_sha1_sum.c
408 tar.c and init.c error - small patch
probably already fixed, but make sure.
403 "ifup -a" seems to ignore up/down/pre-up/pre-down in /etc/network/interfaces
402 httpd in inetd mode: POST from IE (6) ends up in 'cannot display page'
395 GNU/kFreeBSD support
394 cp doesn't exit with an error if there isn't enough space left on device
389 Please modify "logread" in Busybox so that it flushes its output
379 Control-C (SIGINT) is ignored or creates zombie processes
373 bb_askpass doesn't flush stdin
362 insmod chatter
356 Answering ARP with invalid response when queried by firewall
355 ZyXEL Kernel /BusyBox GPL violation?
354 Link fails with CONFIG_FEATURE_MOUNT_LOOP
347 tar: Decompression failed returns exit status 0 even error happened
324 start-stop-daemon failed to start up syslogd
316 CONFIG_ symbol collision with linux 2.4 kernel autoconf.h
310 chmod & chown mixup of permissions with symlinks
309 ping -s n localhost , with n smaller then 6 results in wrong timing results
304 sometimes rmmod is unable to remove modules
282 The mount atime and diratime options set all the mount flags
281 mount -at <type> mounts all the file systems, not just those of type <type>
280 [PATCH] Kill annoying log messages in udhcp-client
279 [PATCH] On-demand net module loading fails with CONFIG_FEATURE_IFUPDOWN_IP
278 [PATCH] on-demand module loading fails with 2.6.X
277 Added IPv6 support for tftp and telnet client and a few more new features for both clients (see below)
276 Linux 2.6 module autoloading breaks when support for 2.4 modules is disabled
272 modprobe does not process parameters
251 broadcast address isn't recalculated if ifconfig of a network address with a non-standard netmask
250 gzipping N files produces N-1 bad gz files
249 constify patch
243 cp clone special files instead of copying from them, for example /dev/null
241 Statusbar not working in stdout output mode for wget
238 RPM uses MMAP which may not be portable.
230 pre-emptible 2.6 kernels cannot use busybox "insmod".
228 chown on symlink
225 Implement support for -S and -b flags to `ln' binary.
224 Add --reverse option to run-parts
190 add proper CGI support to the busybox httpd
186 HTTP responses contain LF instead of CRLF; CGI protocol violation
180 ping output is buffered
169 "tar" with a directory argument doesn't extract the directory recursively
154 Possible problem with ARP implementation
145 Fix strange behavior when issue df with pseudo root device(/dev/root).
136 expr get weird results with long numbers
125 Compile Busybox without MMU failed.
112 awk system() returns 256 multipled value
106 Allow Syslog Remote Connections
85 BusyBox 1,0 ftpput and source file path names
77 uuencode do not work correctly for standart uuencoding (not base64)
76 Defined header CONFIG_FEATURE_DEVPTS from config.h doesn't take effect in telnetd.c
Category: would be nice.
102 problem with large fdisk partitions
System: Familiar Linux 0.8.1 snapshot, running on an iPAQ 3955.
Running Busybox's fdisk on a 1GB SD card creates a valid partition table,
but putting a filesystem > 256MB on any partition results in Busybox's fdisk
being unable to read the partition table (tested for ext2, ext3, reiserfs).
Likwise, if the card is formatted on a desktop with regular GNU fdisk,
Busybox's fdisk can't read the partition table, which shows up fine in GNU
fdisk. The upshot is that the partitions with filesystems can't be mounted
via Busybox. Any partitions created that are < 256MB are automounted and
work normally, although df -h gives incorrect information.
Additional Information The desktop testing system uses a SanDisk
ImageMate reader/writer, and runs Debian "sarge" release.
The exact size threshold may not be correct: I didn't try to pin down where
the change occurs, but I had difficulties with partitions of 1GB, 750MB, and
640MB, so it's possible the threshold is at 512MB.
The current busybox fdisk needs to be thrown out and replaced, for reasons
discussed on the list. Patching this problem would be nice, but it needs
a complete rewrite in 1.2 so fixing the current code is not my highest
58 Compiling ash.c with DEBUG defined generates link error
A) Don't do that then.
B) I intend to reimplement the shell situation in 1.2.
465 [PATCH] Options to nc for setting DiffServ DSCP and VLAN user-priority
It's a new feature, but small.
436 Duplicate messages suppressing
make sure it's configurable...
505 Add support for one applet being setuid for only some users
A) New features we haven't started on should hold off until 1.2.
B) This would be sudo, no?
18 Could not compile vi.c as Standalone
A) I really don't care.
B) make standalone, queued up for 1.2 for all applets.
478 Three patches to Busybox 1.01
New features. Maybe the ping -f one is relevant to 1.1...
407 Debian's update-alternatives
132 Implement fork using longjmp
New feature, and quite possibly a libc issue.
158 libbb, export it and callable from c program.
This is queued for 1.2.
455 inetd may leak sockets
Inetd is vodz's responsibility. He did a large gratuitous shuffle of
the code after this bug was entered, apparently to make it bigger.
I had this flamewar already. I'm not touching it. Not my problem. Bug vodz.
14 ZipIt wireless IM device using Busybox-1.00-pre1
Why is this in the bug system? What am I supposed to do about it?
This is not a bug in busybox, this is a bug in ZipIt.
