Request for a bigger overlayfs - ZyXEL NBG6817 (Armor Z2)


The router has 4GB eMMC flash, but /overlay only has 55MB.

My overlayfs is running out of space quickly (5% left).

# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                 3.5M      3.5M         0 100% /rom
tmpfs                   233.9M      1.3M    232.6M   1% /tmp
/dev/loop0               54.8M     48.2M      2.3M  95% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay       54.8M     48.2M      2.3M  95% /

I guess most people don't even use 1% of bu2 (/dev/mmcblk0p10) partition.

I'm wondering, if it's possible to make the root bigger (say 256MB or 512MB) by making use of bu2 partition?

I'd be nice if it can be included as default in a future release/snapshot.

Have you considered to apply the instructions for extroot to that partition?
