config FEATURE_SEAMLESS_XZ
bool "Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .xz data"
default y
help
Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .xz data.
config FEATURE_SEAMLESS_LZMA
bool "Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .lzma data"
default y
help
Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .lzma data.
config FEATURE_SEAMLESS_BZ2

help
Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .bz2 data.
config FEATURE_SEAMLESS_GZ
bool "Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .gz data"
default y
help
Make tar, rpm, modprobe etc understand .gz data.
config FEATURE_SEAMLESS_Z
bool "Make tar and gunzip understand .Z data"
default n
help
Make tar and gunzip understand .Z data.
config AR
bool "ar"
default n # needs to be improved to be able to replace binutils ar
help
ar is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and
extract contents from archives. An archive is a single file holding
a collection of other files in a structure that makes it possible to
retrieve the original individual files (called archive members).
The original files' contents, mode (permissions), timestamp, owner,
and group are preserved in the archive, and can be restored on
extraction.
The stored filename is limited to 15 characters. (for more information
see long filename support).
ar has 60 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
This implementation of ar can extract archives, it cannot create or
modify them.
On an x86 system, the ar applet adds about 1K.
Unless you have a specific application which requires ar, you should
probably say N here.
config FEATURE_AR_LONG_FILENAMES
bool "Support for long filenames (not needed for debs)"
default y
depends on AR
help
By default the ar format can only store the first 15 characters
of the filename, this option removes that limitation.
It supports the GNU ar long filename method which moves multiple long
filenames into a the data section of a new ar entry.
config FEATURE_AR_CREATE
bool "Support archive creation"
default y
depends on AR
help
This enables archive creation (-c and -r) with busybox ar.
config BUNZIP2
bool "bunzip2"
default y
help
bunzip2 is a compression utility using the Burrows-Wheeler block
sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression
is generally considerably better than that achieved by more
conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the
performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
Unless you have a specific application which requires bunzip2, you
should probably say N here.
config BZIP2
bool "bzip2"
default y
help
bzip2 is a compression utility using the Burrows-Wheeler block
sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression
is generally considerably better than that achieved by more
conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the
performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
Unless you have a specific application which requires bzip2, you
should probably say N here.
config CPIO
bool "cpio"
default y
help
cpio is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and
extract contents from archives.
cpio has 110 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
This implementation of cpio can extract cpio archives created in the
"newc" or "crc" format, it cannot create or modify them.
Unless you have a specific application which requires cpio, you
should probably say N here.
config FEATURE_CPIO_O
bool "Support for archive creation"
default y
depends on CPIO
help
This implementation of cpio can create cpio archives in the "newc"
format only.
config FEATURE_CPIO_P
bool "Support for passthrough mode"
default y
depends on FEATURE_CPIO_O
help
Passthrough mode. Rarely used.
config DPKG
bool "dpkg"
default n
select FEATURE_SEAMLESS_GZ
help
dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage
Debian packages.
This implementation of dpkg has a number of limitations,
you should use the official dpkg if possible.
config DPKG_DEB
bool "dpkg_deb"
default n
select FEATURE_SEAMLESS_GZ
help
dpkg-deb unpacks and provides information about Debian archives.
This implementation of dpkg-deb cannot pack archives.
Unless you have a specific application which requires dpkg-deb,
say N here.
config FEATURE_DPKG_DEB_EXTRACT_ONLY
bool "Extract only (-x)"
default n
depends on DPKG_DEB
help
This reduces dpkg-deb to the equivalent of
"ar -p <deb> data.tar.gz | tar -zx". However it saves space as none
of the extra dpkg-deb, ar or tar options are needed, they are linked
to internally.
config GUNZIP
bool "gunzip"
default y
help
gunzip is used to decompress archives created by gzip.
You can use the `-t' option to test the integrity of
an archive, without decompressing it.

help
gzip is used to compress files.
It's probably the most widely used UNIX compression program.
config FEATURE_GZIP_LONG_OPTIONS
bool "Enable long options"
default y
depends on GZIP && LONG_OPTS
help

config GZIP_FAST
int "Trade memory for gzip speed (0:small,slow - 2:fast,big)"
default 0
range 0 2
depends on GZIP
help
Enable big memory options for gzip.
0: small buffers, small hash-tables
1: larger buffers, larger hash-tables
2: larger buffers, largest hash-tables
Larger models may give slightly better compression
config LZOP
bool "lzop"
default y
help
Lzop compression/decompresion.
config LZOP_COMPR_HIGH
bool "lzop compression levels 7,8,9 (not very useful)"
default n
depends on LZOP
help
High levels (7,8,9) of lzop compression. These levels
are actually slower than gzip at equivalent compression ratios
and take up 3.2K of code.
config RPM2CPIO
bool "rpm2cpio"
default y
help
Converts a RPM file into a CPIO archive.
config RPM
bool "rpm"
default y
help
Mini RPM applet - queries and extracts RPM packages.

default y
depends on TAR || DPKG
help
This option is required to unpack archives created by some old
version of Sun's tar (it was calculating checksum using signed
arithmetic). It is said to be fixed in newer Sun tar, but "old"
tarballs still exist.
config FEATURE_TAR_GNU_EXTENSIONS
bool "Support for GNU tar extensions (long filenames)"
default y
depends on TAR || DPKG
help
With this option busybox supports GNU long filenames and
linknames.

depends on TAR && SELINUX
help
With this option busybox supports restoring SELinux labels
when extracting files from tar archives.
config UNCOMPRESS
bool "uncompress"
default n
help
uncompress is used to decompress archives created by compress.
Not much used anymore, replaced by gzip/gunzip.
config UNLZMA
bool "unlzma"
default y
help
unlzma is a compression utility using the Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain
compression algorithm, and range coding. Compression
is generally considerably better than that achieved by the bzip2
