Read only file system in Debian 9

Recommended Posts

Hi,

1st - thanks for your wonderful job. I really like using Armbian. 

 

I have setup a few small nanopi neo's with spotify / airplay / Bluetooth to play music via Echo-Dots with line in connected speakers. 

 

Now I would like to make this setup as stable as it can be., so I was thinking about making those SD cards read only.

 

What I got from here - on the old kernel 3.4 there is an option - apt-get install overlayroot.

 

Sadly I'm on the latest Debain based image -

 

fritz@nanopineo2:~$ uname -a
Linux nanopineo2 4.14.18-sunxi #24 SMP Fri Feb 9 16:24:32 CET 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux
 

unionfs-fuse is maybe a good option. Before I try that out myself - anybody had done this?

 

Any guide I can use / follow?

 

Regards

Joerg

IMO the best way would be to study overlayroot scripts for Ubuntu and make them work on Debian.

Hi alterfritz,

did you make any progress on this, yet?

I am searching for a similar solution: something like overlayroot for Armbian_5.65 for a BananaPi M2+ (Debian_stretch_next_4.14.78).

The overlayroot package that is mentioned in this thread (1st reply):

would be just what I would need, but the "overlayroot"

package doesn't seem to be available for Debian Stretch.

So, before starting to botch something together myself, I would like to know, if you have found a good solution already.
