Default 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.
