Re: Cowloop...not an animal but a filesys!

cowloop is a nice idea, but its not as sophisticated as unionfs from your previous post, which is superior in terms of performance and optional mounting (nfs mounts, multi mount points, etc).

Re: Cowloop...not an animal but a filesys!

Cowloop has a recent upgrade which may perform better than previous releases.

The two methods, Unionfs and Cowloop, are not the same in performance.  There may indeed be good reasons for either system in LiveCD apps.

Best to know of the characteristics of both and act accordingly.
