Busybox strangeness
« on: September 10, 2017, 08:48:23 AM »
Can someone explain this to me? This is 32-bit busybox on 8.1.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp32/build/vim-master$ tce-status -i | grep unzip
zip-unzip
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp32/build/vim-master$ which unzip
/usr/local/bin/unzip
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp32/build/vim-master$ unzip --help
BusyBox v1.27.1 (2017-08-10 16:51:42 UTC) multi-call binary.

Usage: unzip [-lnopq] FILE[.zip] [FILE]... [-x FILE...] [-d DIR]

Extract FILEs from ZIP archive

        -l      List contents (with -q for short form)
        -n      Never overwrite files (default: ask)
        -o      Overwrite
        -p      Print to stdout
        -q      Quiet
        -x FILE Exclude FILEs
        -d DIR  Extract into DIR
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp32/build/vim-master$ $(which unzip) --help
UnZip 6.00 of 20 April 2009, by Info-ZIP.  Maintained by C. Spieler.  Send
bug reports using http://www.info-zip.org/zip-bug.html; see README for details.

Usage: unzip [-Z] [-opts[modifiers]] file[.zip] [list] [-x xlist] [-d exdir]
  Default action is to extract files in list, except those in xlist, to exdir;
  file[.zip] may be a wildcard.  -Z => ZipInfo mode ("unzip -Z" for usage).

  -p  extract files to pipe, no messages     -l  list files (short format)
  -f  freshen existing files, create none    -t  test compressed archive data
  -u  update files, create if necessary      -z  display archive comment only
  -v  list verbosely/show version info       -T  timestamp archive to latest
  -x  exclude files that follow (in xlist)   -d  extract files into exdir
modifiers:
  -n  never overwrite existing files         -q  quiet mode (-qq => quieter)
  -o  overwrite files WITHOUT prompting      -a  auto-convert any text files
  -j  junk paths (do not make directories)   -aa treat ALL files as text
  -C  match filenames case-insensitively     -L  make (some) names lowercase
  -X  restore UID/GID info                   -V  retain VMS version numbers
  -K  keep setuid/setgid/tacky permissions   -M  pipe through "more" pager
See "unzip -hh" or unzip.txt for more help.  Examples:
  unzip data1 -x joe   => extract all files except joe from zipfile data1.zip
  unzip -p foo | more  => send contents of foo.zip via pipe into program more
  unzip -fo foo ReadMe => quietly replace existing ReadMe if archive file newer

To make matters worse, busybox unzip on 32-bit doesn't preserve the executable bit on ordinary files. I haven't seen this on 64-bit. The zip-unzip does preserve the executable bit. It's hard to compile a package if there aren't any executable scripts.

Did you load zip-unzip in that same shell? The path hash table doesn't get updated until you start a new shell or issue the command to do so.

If not, and it only happens in bb ash and not bash, then it could be a bb bug.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

All one shell. I reboot and it still happens. And it happens with every program there's a busybox app for that I've tried so far, like unzip, wget, and tar. I don't see any aliases for any of those. And for some strange reason when I use copy2fs.lst I occaisionally get a "rmdir: '/mnt/test': Permission denied" which apparently comes from tce-load where sudo is used to make that directory but not used to remove it. I don't know if it's related.

The $PATH looks fine on 64-bit.  :)
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ version
8.1
tc@box:~$ uname -r
4.8.17-tinycore64
tc@box:~$ echo $PATH
/home/tc/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/apps/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/etc/sysconfig/tcedir/ondemand
tc@box:~$ which unzip
/usr/bin/unzip
tc@box:~$ realpath /usr/bin/unzip
/bin/busybox
tc@box:~$ tce-load -i unzip
unzip.tcz: OK
tc@box:~$ which unzip
/usr/local/bin/unzip
tc@box:~$ unzip --help

As for the executable bit ...  :P
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/tmp$ mkdir hello
tc@box:/tmp$ cd hello
tc@box:/tmp/hello$ echo 'echo Hello World!' > hello
tc@box:/tmp/hello$ chmod +x hello
tc@box:/tmp/hello$ cd ../
tc@box:/tmp$ zip hello hello/*
  adding: hello/hello (stored 0%)
tc@box:/tmp$ mkdir cache
tc@box:/tmp$ cd cache/
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ /bin/busybox unzip ../hello.zip
Archive:  ../hello.zip
  inflating: hello/hello
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ ./hello/hello
sh: ./hello/hello: Permission denied
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ ls -l hello/hello
-rw-r--r-- 1 tc staff 18  Sep 11 10:22 hello/hello
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ rm -fr *
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ /usr/local/bin/unzip ../hello.zip
Archive:  ../hello.zip
 extracting: hello/hello             
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ ./hello/hello
Hello World!
tc@box:/tmp/cache$ ls -l hello/hello
-rwxr-xr-x 1 tc staff 18 Sep 11 10:18 hello/hello

I haven't checked the copy2fs.lst yet.

Hi polikuo
I think andyj is having that problem with the 32 bit version.

I know, I'm just saying, on 64-bit, busybox also fails to preserve  the executable bit.  ;)
Not sure why he didn't see that on 32-bit thought.  ???

unzip from CorePure64-7.2/busybox-1.24.2 does preserve the executable bit, so it looks like this is a bug in busybox-1.27.1

I stand corrected. The 64-bit behavior IS the same as 32-bit:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp64/build/temp$ which unzip
/usr/bin/unzip

Comparing the two directories shows that not only is the executable bit not preserved, the file times are not either.
Also, to use GNU diff I had to $(which diff) as busybox prefers it's own here too.

Hi andyj
It looks like you are executing this all in the same shell as curaga mentioned. What happens if you add a  hash  command:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp64/build/temp$ tce-load -i unzip
unzip.tcz: OK
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp64/build/temp$ hash -r
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp64/build/temp$ which unzip
/usr/local/bin/unzip
tc@box:/mnt/sda1/lamp64/build/temp$ unzip --help

Your issue looks similar to this:

So how would we automagically clear the hash table in the current shell when we load an extension which contains replacements for existing (busybox) executables? Sounds like a manual process unless we source tce-load, and tce-load had a 'hash -r' at the end of it.

I don't know the answer to that. Did the  hash  command fix the issue?

..seems busybox now needs CONFIG_FEATURE_UNZIP_CDF=y (not present in previous versions) for the executable bit to be preserved

We cannot. The issue is the same if you, say, install a program to your home dir on Ubuntu, that also exists via packages. You have to issue the command or start a new shell.
