Shared libraries

The first thing you'll need to do is to ensure that the shared objects required by the various drivers you'll be running are present.

All drivers require at least the standard C library shared object ( Since the shared object search order looks in /proc/boot, you don't have to do anything special, except include the shared library into the image. This is done by simply specifying the name of the shared library on a line by itself, meaning "include this file."

Note: The runtime linker is expected to be found in a file called ( for MIPS), but the runtime linker is currently contained within the file, so we would make a process manager symbolic link to it.

The following buildfile snippet applies:

# include the C shared library
# create a symlink called to it
[type=link] /usr/lib/

How do you determine which shared objects you need in the image? There are several ways:
