#11646 reopened enhancement

busybox fails to build

Reported by: Christophe <christophe@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:



when CONFIG_SHADOW_PASSWORDS isn't set but CONFIG_BUSYBOX_CONFIG_FEATURE_SHADOWPASSWDS is, you get a correct but rather ugly compile error. (r32190)

make[4]: Entering directory `/opt/openwrt-trunk/build_dir/target-mips_uClibc-'
  CC      applets/applets.o
In file included from include/busybox.h:8:0,

include/libbb.h:85:22: fatal error: shadow.h: No such file or directory

Status changed from new to closed

Barrier Breaker, as of today, still provides the configuration option in 'make menuconfig'
(Global build settings -> Enable shadow password support)

Perhaps the configuration option should be removed too, so that others (like myself) don't shoot themselves in the foot?
