hello to everyone!
My problem is this: I have a 2.4.21 hard-hat linux running on a board, with most of the applications coming from busybox due to the little capacity of the flash memory on the board. I needed to replace a non-busybox-init program and files related because I didn't want to have zombie processes (afaik, in busybox this is still experimental). The problem is: I just cant' succeed in rebooting the system, neither with busybox shutdown, nor with "normal" shutdown application (shutdown -r now).
In the second case, I get the "you don't exist, go away" message on the shell. I searched the internet and looked if that was a /etc/passwd file problem, but in my /etc/passwd file the line
seems to be correct (isn't it?). I log on as root, of course.
Something is strange when I issue "whoami" command, the system answers with
whoami:unknown uid 0
I don't know if this is related or not... anyway, I'm just thinking about anything, because I really need to solve this problem!!!
I'm wondering if you could help me!!! please!!
