Dropbear ssh server PETs


In recent posts I have mentioned running my Pi3 "headless".

To do this, I needed a SSH server, and chose Dropbear.

Here are the PET packages, for armv7, x6 and x86_64 (261K, 231K, 232K):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/armv7/packages/pet_packages-xerus/dropbear-2016.74-xerus-armv7.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-common/dropbear-2016.74-static-br-x86.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-common/dropbear-2016.74-static-br-x86_64.pet

The last two are compiled statically in Buildroot, and yes, they are smaller than the one compiled with shared libs. But that is partly because the static ones were compiled as a single executable (like busybox).

The good thing about the static PETs is they will work on any old pup. Note, it does expect existence of /lib/lsb/init-functions, which are from Debian, slightly modified.
