yes... something does seem a little off... hopefully someone who uses glibc might shed some insight...

yes, its been a strange for me too...
Thanks for your help..

I found one way but i dont understand why it is working like this

root@OpenWrt:~# ash /usr/bin/ldd
ldd: $missing file arguments
$Try `ldd --help' for more information.

Do you have any idea about this why it is running like this??

good... that seems to indicate that it might be an 'env/busybox' issue and not bin/lib related...

for now... you might wish to put something like this at the bottom of your /etc/profile / shinit

alias ldd='ash /usr/bin/ldd'

can you elaborate please...

where should i put,

[ -e /tmp/.failsafe ] && export FAILSAFE=1

[ -f /etc/banner ] && cat /etc/banner
[ -n "$FAILSAFE" ] && cat /etc/banner.failsafe

fgrep -sq '/ overlay ro,' /proc/mounts && {
echo 'Your JFFS2-partition seems full and overlayfs is mounted read-only.'
echo 'Please try to remove files from /overlay/upper/... and reboot!'

export PATH="/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
export HOME=$(grep -e "^${USER:-root}:" /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f 6)
export HOME=${HOME:-/root}
export PS1='\u@\h:\w$ '

case "$TERM" in
export PS1='[\e]0;\u@\h: \w\a]'$PS1

[ -x /bin/more ] || alias more=less
[ -x /usr/bin/vim ] && alias vi=vim || alias vim=vi

alias ll='ls -alF --color=auto'

[ -z "$KSH_VERSION" -o ! -s /etc/mkshrc ] || . /etc/mkshrc

[ -x /usr/bin/arp -o -x /sbin/arp ] || arp() { cat /proc/net/arp; }
[ -x /usr/bin/ldd ] || ldd() { LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1 $*; }

[ -n "$FAILSAFE" ] || {
for FILE in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do
[ -e "$FILE" ] && . "$FILE"
unset FILE

if ( grep -qs '^root::' /etc/shadow &&
[ -z "$FAILSAFE" ] )
cat << EOF

I added the profile alias in the etc/profile so now i have this output

root@OpenWrt:~# ldd
ldd: $missing file arguments
$Try `ldd --help' for more information.

type ldd; readlink -f /usr/bin/ldd

root@OpenWrt:~# readlink -f /usr/bin/ldd
