i've got bf518-ezbrd with linux 2011r1. In the linux kernel defaut busybox version is 1.18. I want to replace it with higher version busybox. What should i do in the linux?
You can specify a newer version in the file user/busybox/Makefile for 2011R1 uClinux release, but why would you want to do that? 1.20 is not test with 2011 on our side. While we are using busybox 1.20 in 2012R1 buildroot release, do you want to try the 2012 release?
Thanks for your reply! I've read your suggestion, but there is a SD card in my sysytem, and 2012R1 release can't support the SD perfect that I've tested.So i have to use 2011R1 instead. I want to make the DHCP client tool works well in my system ,but the dhcpcd in busybox 1.18 can't get an ipv4 address that issue i've discussed.So I want to update busybox1.18 to 1.20 to have a try.
Is there any other suggerstions for me?
Well, sounds like you have two options:
1)use the 2012, and fix the problem for your SD card in 2012, the SD is fully test on our side before release and it should have a decent stability, however you can describe your SD issue by opening a new help thread with great details of your failure, I can take a look.
2)move busybox 1.20 into the 2011, and I've mentioned how to do it earlier.
Thanks a lot!
I will do some test and then make the decision.
i've decide to use 2012 to replace 2011,but when i compile the linux kernel, there exist a problem:
You must install "unzip" on your build machine.
make: *** [core-dependencies] error 1
what should i do to solve the problem?
Do you have unzip installed on your host PC, as the error log says? by the way, could you always start new thread for new issues, thanks.
