Title: aufs boot bug
Post by: ian_s on 2012/01/28, 21:45:33
This is only relevant to live and or perstant mode ie. fromiso, fromhd, and frugal install (poor mans install)

There is a bug in the initrd0.686 /scripts/fll script which means that the aufs boot code is not working with the siduction style squashfs file.

Using the aufs boot code should restore the previous /fll structure of /fll/aufs/ /fll/siduction/ /fll/source_drive/ directories and use aufs instead of device mapper style.

I have created a solution that works ( but because of incomplete knowledge of the deeper working of the fll script) I have only been only been able to solve by adding a force_aufs boot code which should not be unnecessary.

In what format should I post my patch, is a
"diff -Naur original/scripts/fll force_aufs/scripts/fll > force_aufs_patch.txt" style Ok.

the patch file is 40 lines long it adds 8 lines and changes 4 lines of the original fll script.

With these changes to the fll script you can boot the siduction style squashfs must use BOTH, aufs and force_aufs boot codes.

this will boot into live siduction in aufs style there will be directories /fll/aufs /fll/siduction /fll/your-media-drive and an additional /fll/siductionforce_aufs directory which will hold the ext4 sparse siduction.686 file

As I said above I need to know how to test for the new style squashfs file from inside the fll script and then it would work properly as should be using just aufs boot code for aufs style and none or dmsetup for current style boot.

Sorry, correction to above post left out /fll/cow should read:-


This will boot into live siduction in aufs style there will be directories /fll/aufs /fll/cow /fll/siduction /fll/your-media-drive and an additional /fll/siductionforce_aufs directory which will hold the ext4 sparse siduction.686 file

A better combined patch that does not require extra force_aufs boot code is posted in

image_dir and image_name boot codes bug and a fix
