I've been having problems with Freya, Ubuntu 16 and Linux Mint over the last few weeks - all boot problems and all something to do with Busybox
This week I installed Loki onto 2 HDD's on my PC. One I updated and customised with packages I like to use and it suddenly refused to boot - Busybox was there and gave me the intramfs prompt.
I rebooted onto the other HDD and ran dpkg -L busybox and found it isn't there on the basic installation and my system starts perfectly on that HDD.
I do not want Busybox, it seems to be something invented for compact devices such as phones. I read about it and find it's incredibly invasive and also has vulnerabilities that are related to Microsoft.
It has caused me loads of head-banging grief.
Am I going to find Busybox after a Loki update or does it ship with certain packages? If so which ones please so I can avoid it?
I hate it so much. I looked at Debian iso's on the Debian website and they All have it.
I am looking to keep my elementary system free of it or find another distro that will not include it at all.
