Busybox 1.24.1 with guess_fstype

November 18, 2015 — BarryK
Puppy Forum member 'jamesbond' created a patch for 'guess_fstype' applet, as our old standalone utility is buggy:

I have compiled Busybox 1.24.1 with Jame's patch, compiled statically with uClibc in Landley's Aboriginal Linux root filesystem, both for i486 and x86_64.

Here are the PETs (476KB, 523KB):
x86: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-common/busybox-1.24.1-patched-static-i486.pet
x86_64: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-common/busybox-1.24.1-patched-static-amd64.pet

The 'busybox' binary is about 900KB.

I also compiled it for the initrd that is used in Quirky, and the binary is about 400KB.
The binary is in woofQ, just updated online (my Bones repo, see recent post).
