What means "mu-rewrited"? Your english seems fractured like mine!

If mu-rewritten is the right translation, do you refer to ash scripts
or other slimmed binaries, like "stty", "hdparm", etc?

You can, but should be polite to add in some place a reference
to muLinux, in the destination distro.

muLinux commands emulated with scripts are all largely un-reliable; I
provided them as programming exercises. Crucial command like: route,
ifconfig, insmod, etc are all un-touched. They are "good" as original
ones, if you neglet the crude reality: they are old releases. Ok,
the bugs are now under control in muLinux, because they are unchanged
until 3 years, and any bug is linked with a workaround. But I cannot
imagine what will happens in other environment.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
