arm m image builds without root

Guest on 28th May 2022 03:23:19 PM

  1. creating, editing images involves a loop mount today
  2.  
  3. rootstock without root priveledge as well as for other build tools
  4.  
  5.  * problem is that this requires root
  6.  * this is a problem because users don't necessarily have root on the systems they're developing on
  7.  
  8.  * options:
  9.   * squash-tools supports creation/unpacking of squashfs images
  10.   * nbd could in the past be run as non-root, with a loop mount
  11.   * fuse ISO mount exists; similar for ext2, ext3
  12.    * e2fslibs exists
  13.    * mtools for vfat
  14.    * obstacles:
  15.    * fuse user mounts strips properties
  16.     * the example ISO driver is read-only
  17.        * can use mount to extract & mkisofs to repack?
  18.     * ext2 may not play well with later fs formats
  19.   * fuseext2 exists
  20.   * run a service as root that lets you perform the necessary operations
  21.  
  22. livefs cross-arch support?
  23.  
  24. == ACTIONS ==
  25.  * file a bug with gnome upstream about fuseext2 support in gvfs (MIME type integration)
  26.  * make rootstock work without root
