I think that some of you may be interested that Busybox 0.45 has been
released. This version fixes too many bugs to list here.

Busybox is small, easy to cross-compile. It provides essential utilities
such as init, mount, telnet (now working) and other.

I tried the busybox binary from the "gonzo" filesystem. There is a problem
with "init" when it's a symlink to busybox - it complains about
insufficient memory (today's kernel from CVS). This is almost certainly a
kernel problem.

I would like to see the binary of busybox on the ftp server. By the way,
it would be nice to update the precompiled kernel - the latest kernel on
ftp://puffin.external.hp.com/pub/parisc/binaries/kernels/ is dated by
February 18, 2000.

Another side note - the list of modules on
http://www.thepuffingroup.com/parisc/cvs.html needs to be updated.
