I am investigating of use old Ifplugd instead of Connmand utility. I am doing this for save of resources and backward compatibility. Connmand requires use of Glib2 and this asks lot of device resources. On the other hand, we need only tricker notifies plugging and unplugging ethernet cable and ifplugd is enough in this situation. Ifplug is also easier to fit in our own application.
Backround: I have set up OE environment with these instructions and mostly all works perfectly: http://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/board-support-package/openembedded-(core)
Bitbake does find connman utility, connman it is possible to install and connman goes well, I have seen. But as i said, I am trying to use lighter alternative, ifplugd, because it it enough in our situation.
Ifpludg is possible to install from Busybox package with:
bitbake busybox -c menuconfig
Ifplugd installs and is possible to use, but no configuration files is installed.
With Buildroot environment, it also uses Busybox package and there is also option to choose ifplugd to compile. When I chose ifplugd in this way, this goes well and there is installed a new folder and three files regarding ifplugd:
My question is: is there automatic way to do this possible with Toradex OE environment also? Does upper level OE overwrite down level Busubox installation and so ifplugd configuration files are not installed? Is there way to avoid this?
