"opkg upgrade" of busybox causes lots of "echo: not found" errors

Reported by: xanalogica Owned by: mickey
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: packaging/distribution Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When doing an "opkg upgrade" you get a lot of "echo: not found" for various packages if busybox was upgraded during the same cycle. This is because the instantiation of busybox being used by opkg at the instant has been yanked out from underneath it. I do not know if the lack of echo is causing these other scripts to actually fail to make necessary changes or just be noisy.

Thanks for the report, unfortunately this is not a freesmartphone-specific issue. Could I talk you into reporting this with the OpenEmbedded? bugtracker @

Thanks again,
