Projects / sash


Sash is a stand-alone shell for system recovery in Linux. Its purpose is to make system recovery possible in many cases where there are missing shared libraries or executables. It does this by firstly being linked statically, and secondly by including versions of many of the standard utilities within itself. Some of these built-in commands are chattr, chmod, chown, cp, dd, ed, find, grep, gzip, ln, ls, mkdir, mknod, more, mount, mv, rm, and tar.

          sash patches
          during the last two years I have developed a set of patches for sash. I have contacted the original author of sash, David Bell multiple times and asked him to consider inclusion of those new features in future versions of sash. So far I have _never_ received any response.

          I plan to make these patches available as a separate project on freshmeat now -- stay tuned!
