Installation

Install the busybox package.

Busybox commands are symbolic links to /usr/bin/busybox and thus take very little space. This is especially interesting for low-footprint systems.

Usage

init

Init scripts can be used together with busybox-init, for example minircAUR[broken link: package not found]. See init for details.

getty

The gettys are defined in the file /etc/inittab, By default getty is started on ttys 1 through 4.

In order to enable/disable gettys, you just put this line in /etc/inittab.

tty2::respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 -s 38400 tty2 linux

Just replace tty2 with the tty, you want getty to start on. If you want init to ask you before starting the gettty, then replace respawn with askfirst.

mdev

See Gentoo wiki.
