read-only-rootfs support enhancements Yocto layer

This layer held fixes for read-only-rootfs support that were needed by Mentor Graphics Corporation. This layer is no longer necessary given the support from upstream oe-core.

This layer depends on:

URI: git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core Branch: master


URL: https://github.com/MentorEmbedded/meta-ro-rootfs

To contribute to this layer, please fork and submit pull requests to the above repository with github, or open issues for any bugs you find, or feature requests you have.


  1. Add this layer to BBLAYERS in bblayers.conf

  2. Enable read-only-rootfs for your images, by adding this to local.conf:

    EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES += "read-only-rootfs"

If the default writable paths are insufficient, you can add additional bind mounts for files or directories. Examples:

VOLATILE_BINDS_append = "/var/volatile/www /www\n"
VOLATILE_BINDS_append = "/var/volatile/rsyncd.conf /etc/rsyncd.conf\n"
