LIN5-2044 : tnftp command has no alternates link

Applicable for: Wind River Linux 5
Component/s: Userspace


Users expect to use an "ftp" command but none exists in WRL5. The tnftp package provides a binary called "tnftp" but users may not know to look for this name.

There should be an "alternates" symlink called "ftp" which points to the implementation-specific "tnftp" command.


Use tnftp directly

Steps to Reproduce

$ configure --enable-board=qemux86-64 --enable-rootfs=glibc_cgl --enable-kernel=cgl
$ make
$ make start-target

Log in then:

# which ftp
which: no ftp in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin)

# which tnftp
