squashFS vs unionFS for the ClassmatePC Ubuntu

Registered by Richard Weideman on 2007-10-29

The ClassmatePC has a limited data storage on the internal flash: 2GB
The 2GB must accommodate the Ubuntu install, as well as updates, as well as a decent size for user data.

squashFS allows for:
* a small install footprint
* fast booting

unionFS is the standard Ubuntu choice

This session will discuss the pros anc cons of each file system, and take a technical decision on a final design choice.

Whiteboard

The UME team have built their base install using the same file system configuration as Oliver selected for the Classmate PC.

This discussion is therefore no longer needed, as we will proceed on parallel paths to the UME team.
