Hi all,

TinyCore Editor version 0.4.4 runs in TinyCore.
So, you can compile busybox directly into TC.

https://github.com/robang74/tinycore-editor/archive/refs/tags/v0.4.4.tar.gz

Choose "develop" in tinycore/tinycore.conf and follow the quick start in README.txt

Cheers,
-R

TinyCore Editor v0.4.8 it is able to recompile itself into the virtual guest 


Compatibility:

- TinyCore 12: tested ok (busybox recompiling is fine, native)
- Ubuntu 18.04: tested ok (busybox recompiling is acceptable)
- Ubuntu 20.04: tested ok (busybox recompiling inherits libcrypt-1.1.0)

The libcrypt-1.1.0 inheritance is not deeply tested yet but could be avoided:

- avoid to recompile busybox but only the ISO image
- use qemu and the ISO image to produce a native custom rootfs.gz
- transfer the native custom rootfs.gz via SSH and use it for any changes which are not involved with the busybox.

 After all, inheritance could be acceptable for testing busybox changes/developments but native compilation is the way to go.

Cheers,
