coreutils binary package
 
Hi,

Due to problems with coreutils w/ 'xattr' USE-flag (cp) can't remerge it
as some other packages.
So need a binary package w/o xattr, a newer version will
probably solve this too (need a i686-binary).
Seems i could also use the install disk to get it but don't have one
available.

Any hints or help will be appreciated.
Thanks, Rumen

busybox ;)

you should have installed it. just create a cp symlink and then remerge
coreutils with the buildpkg option (just in case the symlink does not get
overwritten/removed). untar the package, rm the symlink, mv cp from the pgk to
/bin.

Hi,

Thanks for the hint, once used busybox to recover but was a long ago.
Didn't expected that 'xattr' will create such a mess (with reiser4).
Thanks again.
