Re: util-linux missing from build root



Hi Ralf,

I did not mention POSIX, as I supposed that would imply too huge
buildroot.  But your suggestion has made to look at this alternative
more closely, and it actually looks very sane.

We have to remove the crazy things from POSIX, like sccs, and a few
more (like "lp" which would bring cups, or "talk"), and that might
work.  We would have to add a few small utilities which, though not
standardized by POSIX, are widely supposed (fgrep, egrep, tar, cpio).
Then a few bigger utils (e.g., perl) and here we go.

Thanks,
