Re: BeastieBox, a (Net)BSD BusyBox-like

Have you actually tried to just reduce the link list to the programs you
want? There are a lot of programs in /rescue you normally might not
want, many of them are not small.

Well, to be more precise, my point is not to reduce the number of programs to fit into a defined size, but more to have as much programs as possible fitting in a very small-sized binary / .so list. As a comparison, here are the tools available with the original busybox :

And all this crowd fits into 376K !

Let's be honest, most of these tools only do the basic stuff, but the fact is every single recent set-top-box / router / multimedia hard drive use busybox, and as a matter of fact, Linux.
