Bug Description

Binary package hint: busybox-initramfs

The ubuntu package does not include wc that is part of the debian package and it is used in live-initramfs boot scripts.

Without wc an Ubuntu system using live-initramfs fails to boot.

live-initramfs has much more features than casper and may be used in specific environments where casper does not provide enough functionality.

This bug was fixed in the package busybox - 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu1

busybox (1:1.13.3-1ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - [udeb] Enable chvt, dd conv=notrunc, getopt (and -l), killall,
      losetup, mktemp, NFS mount, od, ping, stat, and remote syslog.
    - [deb] Enable mdev.
    - Enable 'mount -f' and mount helpers for all targets.
    - Add busybox-initramfs.
    - mkswap-uuid.patch: Set UUIDs on swap areas.
    - test-bin.patch: Move test and friends to /bin.
    - mount-helper-fixes.patch: Add proper support for mount -i (don't use
      external mount helper), and trivial support for umount -i although
      busybox umount doesn't support external helpers yet. Fix handling of
      mount -f and -n.
    - getopt-long-only.patch: Allow 'getopt -l' to be enabled independently
      of the whole of CONFIG_GETOPT_LONG, so that it can be enabled more
    - printf-errors.patch: Exit non-zero on conversion errors.
  * procps-kernel-threads.patch: Drop. We haven't needed this since we
    rewrote casper as an initramfs-tools module anyway, and the bit of this
    patch that actually does anything was dropped in 1:1.01-4ubuntu1 so we
    clearly don't need the rest of it!
  * [initramfs] Include wc for the benefit of live-initramfs (LP: #387944).

busybox (1:1.13.3-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
    - Unbreak compressed usage. (closes: #521443)
  * [deb, udeb] Enable udhpc. (closes: #504089)
  * [udeb] Enable tftp. (closes: #510058)
  * [udeb] Enable tar archive creation. (closes: #487433)
  * Make strip build option work correctly. (closes: #503581)
