AUFS support on >4.9 kernel

Postby marbi » Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:26 am

Docker requires a kernel with AUFS support, right now in 4.9 kernel version aufs has been removed...

So my question is that if there will be any solution to this situation besides compiling own kernel with aufs support.

I am looking into why the AUFS patches were dropped. I expect it was problems with the patch set.

Can't OverlayFS be used?

It can be, but it doesn't have the same feature set and capabilities are a touch different.

However, I believe the reason for AUFS being disabled for a period was in waiting for the AUFS patch set to be updated to work with 4.9.x and not 4.9-rc.

I've downgraded to 4.4 kernel for the moment since I need AUFS support for my docker containers.

How will I know when AUFS is being enabled again? looking here ?
