Support for unionfs

(1/6) > >>

V.Krishn:

As one gets to use TinyCore regularly having more than 500mb extensions,
would it possible to have an option to create UnionFs sfs out of existing extentions.
unionfs.lst - this can exist along with copy2fs and onboot.lst
 Extentions in unionfs.lst would be layed as unionfs and not symlinked thus speeding boot time.

Another usage - quick/neat packaging of a custom distro.

curaga:
Unionfs/aufs have different drawbacks to symlinks, mainly bugs and constant file opening overhead. We intentionally avoided them.

You're welcome to send an extension for unionfs though.

V.Krishn:
Would it be possible to have aufs support in kernel / core.gz (increase in size ~170kb)

curaga:
No.

If you cannot accept the design of our system then why use it?
There are 700+ other distros for you to peruse many use unionfs/aufs.
