Hi, I'm interested in hearing how others have managed a root filesystem
based on squashfs (or similar) with layering using aufs (or unionfs)?
I am building an embedded box and it looks like it would work well to
have a simple package manager based around a bunch of squashfs
partitions which layer on new functionality for certain builds (and it
would allow some versioning). On the top of that we need a writeable
bunch of configuration files which we might do either with symlinks or a
writeable top level partition (still undecided).
Mainly interested to hear how others have managed the boot process and
built their initrd/linuxrc? I'm sure I read about at least one person
on this list calling a similar setup "squashfs packages"?
