Meet Odroid C2: the newest member of the Volumio 2 family

Postby felix.wolfsteller » Mon Jan 09 2017 09:28

According to this post and a board member on the odroid forums (http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 42#p174942) you guys managed to set up overlay(root?) on the odroid c2 ubuntu image.

What steps where necessary to achieve that? I'd be glad to have a odroid running on a RO fs (see post in odroid forum) but struggle with details (that stem from a lack of understanding how the linux kernel bootup works, I guess). Glad to read a reply.

Not quite, we do not use Ubuntu or the overlayroot package
We run Debian and use our own initramfs which basicly mounts a squashfs filesystem (the static part) and a dynamic ext4 filesystem and then uses overlayfs to overlay the dynamic filesystem on top of the static part.
Have a look at https://github.com/volumio/Build/blob/master/scripts/initramfs/init for details.
Overlayfs has been compiled into the C2 kernel as a module.
