Aufs development hiatus

November 30, 2019 — BarryK

I was pleased last night when I saw that the Linux 5.4.1 kernel has been released. So, got setup to compile it, including the latest Aufs5 from github:

There is no "5.4" branch, so had to use "5.x-rcN". I noticed the lack of commits, the last at was September 19, tag "5.3".

The aufs patch is broken for 5.4.1.

I found this in the aufs mail list:

> Ouch!

> I have to get a new pc and replace it.  Until then, all my development

I cannot get the new pc until 18 Dec.
I am afraid that my aufs development, especially compile and tests are
done this year.

Looks like I am going to have to be patient, unless someone fixes the patches before then.
