busybox: applets included isn't listed (resolved)



  • https://www.busybox.net/downloads/BusyBox.html
    says that
    "If you invoke BusyBox with no arguments, it will provide you with a list of the applets that have been compiled into your BusyBox binary."

    instead it reports:

    busybox: applet not found

    It would be great if it did.

    PS I must have done something wrong. I plugged it in and it just worked! Yipiee.
    Thanks for a GREAT system.



  • Nice you got it! Could you please mark your request in the title as resolved ?



  • @Luciano-S. Sorry I didn't mean to imply that I got the info about busybox, rather the onion works.

    Still don't know what's included in busybox!



  • On my Omega2+ 0.1.8 (b145)

    BusyBox Version: 1.25.1-2
    Currently defined applets:

    [ [[ ash awk basename brctl bunzip2 bzcat cat chgrp chmod chown chroot clear cmp cp cron crond crontab cut date dd df dirname dmesg du echo egrep env expr false fgrep find free fsync grep gunzip gzip halt head hexdump hwclock id ifconfig ip kill killall less ln lock logger login ls md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mkswap mktemp mount mv nc netmsg netstat nice nslookup ntpd ntpd-hotplug passwd pgrep pidof ping ping6 pivot_root poweroff printf ps pwd readlink reboot reset rm rmdir route sed seq sh sha256sum sleep sort start-stop-daemon strings switch_root sync sysctl sysntpd tail tar tee test time top touch tr traceroute traceroute6 true udhcpc umount uname uniq uptime vi wc which xargs yes zcat

    opkg is a useful command.
    opkg info busybox
    opkg files busybox

    Here you are a usage example and an edited list of BB's files:

  • @György-Farkas Thanks for your help. Why doesn't busybox list the apps?



  • @Dennis-German said in busybox: applets included isn't listed (resolved):

    https://www.busybox.net/downloads/BusyBox.html

    DESCRIPTION
    BusyBox is extremely configurable. This allows you to include only the components you need, thereby reducing binary size.

    Please read also https://www.busybox.net/FAQ.html how to configure BB if you want to make a "well configured" busybox binary from source.

    Here you are a quick help if you really can't live without a fully featured BB ;-)

    cd ~
    wget https://www.busybox.net/downloads/binaries/1.26.2-defconfig-multiarch/busybox-mipsel
    ls -l
    chmod +x busybox-mipsel
    ls -l
    ./busybox-mipsel

    And an example:
    stat
    ./busybox-mipsel stat
    ./busybox-mipsel stat /bin/busybox
    ./busybox-mipsel stat busybox-mipsel

    Sorry asking, what has your Sony z1s to do with the onion omega1/2 or2+ ?
    Are you in the correct community? Or did I miss out something :anguished:

     ./busybox-mipsel
    

    As @Dennis-German i also had this incomplete busybox installation with the message busybox: applet not found

    I replaced /bin/busybox with the -mipsel one and made:
    busybox --install [-s] [/bin]

    Now i have peace and a full working BB.

    @Dennis-German i guess onion.io made this lousy images on a Friday night or Monday morning early ;)

    It would be great if it did.
    
    • Coming back 2 this question ...
    1. why do we have now to fiddle around with Busybox before we can use it?

    I would say in the Firmware it misses the command help and install ... then we probably could fix it ?!

    Or does this come fom LEDE already this way?
