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?

    I have xCompile.sh from the sample. I assume it use it with a modified Makefile.am?

    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 update
    opkg install procps-ng-ps

    Usage example:
    /usr/bin/ps -eF

    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.


    root@Omega-5BE1:~# ls -l /bin/ps
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root             7 Jul 27 07:51 /bin/ps -> busybox
    ps --help
    root@Omega-5BE1:~# ls -l /usr/bin/ps
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         61656 Jul 25 03:55 /usr/bin/ps
    /usr/bin/ps --help all

    Good luck!
