Full libc?

    Would it be possible to include a full libc into the ROM fs?

    I am asking because I am fiddling with flvstreamer, and it does not seem to work with libuc. However, I can use the binary from debian mipsel linked against the standard libc, and it works fine! Only setting up libc (and especially ld.so) on a read-only file system is a bit of a pain, hence the question.

    Being able to run packages from Debian (stable in this case) might be quite a useful option for some of the more obscure tools.

    PS: Actually I got flvstreamer to work just fine with libuc. So I will see whether get_iplayer works, too. However, a full libc6 might still be a useful addition.

    It would be possible but it isn't really suitable for the embedded environment. uClibc is optimised for it and should work with almost anything.
