AUFS mount no longer working after kernel upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi, first post here.


After upgrading Armbian on my Odroid-N2 to 5.8.13-meson64, I can no longer mount using autofs, neither manually nor via systemctl.   The error message is:

mount: /home/<mountdir>: unknown filesystem type 'aufs'.


The Armbian Build Options information suggests that kernel builds include AUFS by default:

AUFS ( yes | no ): Include support for AUFS


Am I missing something?

Armbian version is #20.08.6 SMP PREEMPT Thu Oct 1 18:51:27 CEST 2020

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

AUFS has not been updated to 5.8 yet. Therefore it is not included.

Just gave it a shot with the last branch available but patching fails
