How to use create a union (mergerfs) file system on fedora atomic?

I tried installing mergerfs with rpm-ostree install mergerfs without success. Packages not found: mergerfs

How do I add the package to the system? I’m on fedora atomic GNOME (silverblue). The same question arises for all other atomic variants.

there is no package called mergerfs in Fedora 39, so that makes sense that it can’t find it.

There is one called unionfs but I don’t know if that will do what you want.

Thx!

I hope I can use copr on silverblue. I’ll test if that works errornointernet/mergerfs Copr

you have to add mergerfs via copr

you can add it via

sudo curl --output-dir "/etc/yum.repos.d/" --remote-name https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/errornointernet/mergerfs/repo/fedora-39/errornointernet-mergerfs-fedora-39.repo
sudo rpm-ostree refresh-md --force

thx to hricky

Checkout GitHub - trytomakeyouprivate/COPR-command: A small script reenabling the "COPR" command on Fedora distros not including it

I found that command in some deleted comment in some thread.

It replicates the copr functionality close to 1:1 but is a standalone implementation, doesnt use root for network processes and uses polkit to write the file to the repo directory.
