Looking for help to x-compile procps-ng
The busybox /bin/ps doesn't fit my needs.
I have found https://gitlab.com/procps-ng/procps
And I have set up the x-compile environment on an Ubuntu box.
I see a Makefile.am in the procps source. Is that what I use? Why does it have an .am suffix?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here you are a little bit simpler way ;-)
Uncomment this line of /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
src/gz reboot_packages http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages
opkg install procps-ng-ps
opkg list | grep procps-ng
procps-ng - 3.3.11-3 - procps is a set of command line and full-screen utilities that provide information out of the pseudo-filesystem most commonly located at /proc. This filesystem provides a simple interface to the kernel data structures. The programs of procps generally concentrate on the structures that describe the processess running on the system.
NOTE: some utilities provided by procps-ng packages (ps, uptime, kill, ...) are installed as busybox applets, by default.
Conflicting applets should be removed from the build to avoid file conflicts.
