#9080 closed defect (worksforme)

overlayfs gets mounted on /tmp/root instead of /

Reported by: ddxx0n Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Somehow, on my system (WNDR3700 w/ using latest trunk overlayfs doesn't get mounted on / but on /tmp/root - thus the root fs stays read-only.

I remember having this issue before, but only on first boot after installing a new openwrt firmware, after rebooting it always went away. With the latest trunk, even rebooting doesn't help.

... this was the working mini_fo r26195 filesystem layout (with mini_fo):

Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                          4.9M      4.9M         0 100% /rom
                         30.3M    172.0K     30.1M   1% /tmp
                        512.0K         0    512.0K   0% /dev
                          1.8M    516.0K      1.3M  28% /overlay
                          4.9M      4.9M         0 100% /

... and this is the new r26215 broken filesystem layout (with overlayfs):

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                          4992      4992         0 100% /
                         31052       144     30908   0% /tmp
                           512         0       512   0% /dev
                          1856       208      1648  11% /overlay
                          1856       208      1648  11% /mnt
                          1856       208      1648  11% /mnt
                         31052         0     31052   0% /tmp/root

You need to run make target/linux/clean, otherwise the overlayfs patch doesn't make it into the kernel

Your're right, that did it - thx for the information, I didn't know that one yet, just used to rm -rf some stuff when upgrading to a newer kernel version.
