Hi Dan

I've been using UBIFS for the NAND root filesystem for the past 2-3 years. It seems to tolerate hard shutdowns quite, as I've never had a Gumstix become unbootable even after hundreds of shutdowns.

More info on UBIFS:

Some links explaining how to use a UBIFS image with Gumstix:

After you build an image using OE (e.g. running "bitbake omap3-console image") you should find a .ubi file in your images output folder. This is what you would write onto your rootfs NAND partition.

Hope this helps get you started

Given that gumstix is used in embedded applications, I’m wonder what people do to manage a graceful Linux shutdown?  Or is it just power off?
