What board are you using?
What kernel version did you select?
What libc did you choose (glibc or uClibc)?
What version of the AccessLibrary are you using?

No, none required. Busybox will take care of building in what it needs.

I wouldn't expect so. Try runnin "ps" before loading the
IXP modules to check.

I use this a bit (IXP425 board with busybox), and I haven't seen
any problems with ps.
