Some application you should better install

  • udev for automatic devices (/dev) detection
apt-get install udev
  • module-init-tools for kernel modules loading
apt-get install module-init-tools
  • Bzip2 (for compression/decompression of .bz2 files)
apt-get install bzip2

Some usefull application to use with this image

  • A compilation environement
apt-get install make automake gcc g++ patch libncurses5-dev
  • An openSSH server
apt-get install ssh
  • wget for command line downloading
apt-get install wget
  • unrar (for decompressing .rar files), you need to compile it yourself as there is no packages for this one
tar xzf unrarsrc-3.6.5.tar.gz && rm unrarsrc-3.6.5.tar.gz && cd unrar
make -f makefile.unix && cp unrar /usr/bin
cd .. && rm -rf unrar
