Last change on this file since 821 was 821, checked in by Bruno Cornec, 14 years ago

Addition of busybox 1.2.1 as a mindi-busybox new package
This should avoid delivering binary files in mindi not built there (Fedora and Debian are quite serious about that)

8config CONFIG_AR
9    bool "ar"
10    default n
11    help
12      ar is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and
13      extract contents from archives.  An archive is a single file holding
14      a collection of other files in a structure that makes it possible to
15      retrieve the original individual files (called archive members).
16      The original files' contents, mode (permissions), timestamp, owner,
17      and group are preserved in the archive, and can be restored on
18      extraction.
19
20      The stored filename is limited to 15 characters. (for more information
21      see long filename support).
22      ar has 60 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
23
24      This implementation of ar can extract archives, it cannot create or
25      modify them.
26      On an x86 system, the ar applet adds about 1K.
27
28      Unless you have a specific application which requires ar, you should
29      probably say N here.
30
31config CONFIG_FEATURE_AR_LONG_FILENAMES
32    bool "Enable support for long filenames (not need for debs)"
33    default n
34    depends on CONFIG_AR
35    help
36      By default the ar format can only store the first 15 characters of the
37      filename, this option removes that limitation.
38      It supports the GNU ar long filename method which moves multiple long
39      filenames into a the data section of a new ar entry.
40
41config CONFIG_BUNZIP2
42    bool "bunzip2"
43    default n
44    help
45      bunzip2 is a compression utility using the Burrows-Wheeler block
46      sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding.  Compression
47      is generally considerably better than that achieved by more
48      conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the
49      performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
50
51      The BusyBox bunzip2 applet is limited to de-compression only.
52      On an x86 system, this applet adds about 11K.
53
54      Unless you have a specific application which requires bunzip2, you
55      should probably say N here.
56
57config CONFIG_CPIO
58    bool "cpio"
59    default n
60    help
61      cpio is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and extract
62      contents from archives.
63      cpio has 110 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
64
65      This implementation of cpio can extract cpio archives created in the
66      "newc" or "crc" format, it cannot create or modify them.
67
68      Unless you have a specific application which requires cpio, you should
69      probably say N here.
70
71config CONFIG_DPKG
72    bool "dpkg"
73    default n
74    help
75      dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage Debian packages.
76
77      This implementation of dpkg has a number of limitations, you should use the
78      official dpkg if possible.
79
80config CONFIG_DPKG_DEB
81    bool "dpkg_deb"
82    default n
83    help
84      dpkg-deb packs, unpacks and provides information about Debian archives.
85
86      This implementation of dpkg-deb cannot pack archives.
87
88      Unless you have a specific application which requires dpkg-deb, you should
89      probably say N here.

91config CONFIG_FEATURE_DPKG_DEB_EXTRACT_ONLY
92    bool "extract only (-x)"
93    default n
94    depends on CONFIG_DPKG_DEB
95    help
96      This reduces dpkg-deb to the equivalent of "ar -p <deb> data.tar.gz | tar -zx".
97      However it saves space as none of the extra dpkg-deb, ar or tar options are
98      needed, they are linked to internally.
99
100config CONFIG_GUNZIP
101    bool "gunzip"
102    default n
103    help
104      gunzip is used to decompress archives created by gzip.

106      an archive, without decompressing it.
