For some time now, OverlayFS has been able to do everything I've been using AUFS for. I'll continue maintaining this, but I won't be using it myself and suggest that AUFS users take a look at the latest version of OverlayFS (which can do several branches, too).
If you have any actual reasons to use AUFS because of features OverlayFS doesn't have, such as multiple RW branches in round-robin, please do comment here.

Before marking this out-of-date: please do so only if the build breaks.
The PKGBUILD is dynamically self-updating so that it builds the last version regardless, and a script on my server updates every 6 hours the apparent version on AUR for the convenience of AUR helpers. It will still build the latest version in every case.

sadkisson, Drarrel: this is not my bug. Try to build core/linux and you'll get the same error. So fix your keyring or --skippgpcheck.

@Shagabutdinov - It looks like the arch build system has been removed see

Hopefully @Calimero will be able to patch it soon. I'm needing to use AUFS to get around a openJDK/Wildfly bug when using docker with overlay2.

I'm receiving error "@ERROR: Unknown module 'abs'" - any ideas how to fix it?

I use it for write balancing.

Seems like there's still no patches for 4.11 kernel and this package can't be built right now. Can you please update PKGBUILD to use 4.10 kernel?

I use AUFS on my file server to balance the writing to disks

Hi, i check using `curl | sh` but it shows: `CONFIG_AUFS_FS: missing`
version: 4.10.9-1-aufs_friendly

This package was not intended for use outside a tree with access to the Arch proper ABS.

Arch Linux ARM is a separate distribution, and while it is based on Arch, it maintains a separate repository of specific PKGBUILDs (see their github).

Any particular reason you are not using their official linux-raspberrypi that already have AUFS?

can't install on a raspberry pi 3 archv7h

rsync: change_dir "/armv7h/core/linux" (in abs) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1650) [Receiver=3.1.2]

I use it too for multiple rw branches.

GI_Jack commented on 2016-07-07 21:39

my current setup uses AUFS, and I don't feel like re-writing it so I use it.

tsuflux commented on 2016-05-28 18:07

@Calimero, I am using AUFS with the create=pmfs policy for multiple RW branches. I would change to OverlayFS but I believe that this feature is not supported.
