Linux kernel 4.0 stable with overlayfs is out

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Linux kernel 4.0 stable with overlayfs is out

Post#1 by bdheeman » 19 Apr 2015, 13:09

The Linux kernel 4.0 stable with overlayfs is out, is there anyone plan to try/use vanilla/un-patched kernel with overlayfs for Porteus Live?

I believe it is also in the last of the 3 series. I am playing with it here, but not as a replacement for aufs.

I have overlayfs working here with the Nemesis edition of Porteus. It works fine with pacman but not for porteus modules unless I can find a way to unmount and remount the rootfs.
