@peebee
Thank you very much for your pointing my mistake.
The script of getting AUFS patch of "Kernel Builder" has a bug.
It causes getting aufs-5.x-rcN everytime.

"Kernel Builder" was updated from 21.01.14 to 21.01.20.

Kernel 5.10.9 has been released.
Patching it with AUFS patch was successful.

AUFS VERSION:

Thanks.

[a kernel build/usage issue]

There are two types of CONFIG.
Old version: neko-32/64bit.config
New version: 32/64bit.config

1. ===ISO with kernel built with AUFS patched kernel with old version CONFIG===

1.1. Booting in an AUFS environment fails.
Shell operation/access failure inside initrd.

Code: Select all

-> 000-kernel.xzm
-> 001-core.xzm
Killed
-> 001-z.core.xzm

1.2. Booting successfully in the OVERLAYFS environment.
After rising, the audio output is muted.
When you set/cancel mute with PULSEAUDIO and adjust the volume (slide), sound will come out.

2. ===ISO with kernel built with AUFS patched kernel with new version CONFIG===
Booting successfully in the AUFS environment.
The size of the built kernel is larger than the old version of CONFIG.


---> I will study how to use aufs-util.git in initrd for case 1.1.

"aufs-util.git/README"
These utilities are always necessary for aufs.
If you forget to install them, your aufs may not work correctly.
And these are not for aufs1 essentially, except aubrsync. See below in
detail.

The ISO including the latest kernel builder has been uploaded.

Hello guys,
It seems the download link for 5.10.5 example kernel build is no longer available. Could anyone be so kind to provide its 64-bit crippled-sources module?
Or, a newer kernel (5.10.6/7.....)? Thanks a lot.
M.O.

Thanks, Blaze.
Unfortunately, I have to confirm the error. My laptop stucks booting saying it is impossible to mount aufs on /union.
Anything missing in the 5.10.9 kernel/000-kernel?

I was able to compile the kernel using the single patch. The system starts, reads all modules but refuses to read the rootcopy directory.

Inform on boot that are reading the rootcopy directory but start as if it were freshmode :oops:

maia,

That is really strange, as the initrd is responsible for loading rootcopy. I can't see any way that the kernel would affect that.

I compiled 5.10.9 two days ago using the aufs5-standalone-aufs5.10 patches and it works well, rootcopy is loaded. I haven't tried with the single patch which I think you used. I just compiled 5.10.10 using the same patches and it's running well.

M.O.,
My kernel would probably be of little use to you as it's configured for my system and many (most) drivers are left out.

During boot the show the information the system is reading the rootcopy folder but in reality does not read it.

I must have done some improper configuration when I optimized .config for my system.
