I have updated the patchset-8 of unionfs.

For 7-current

For 6.x

Changes in unionfs-p8.diff
- Fixed the issue that user whom has access permission
cannot change the directory because he cannot create
its shadow directory. As a result of this fixed, now
unionfs uses root permission creating shadow directory

The document of those unionfs patches is pretty improved by Hiroo
ONO-san. (English) (Japanese)

Please try -p8 Dario. We are thinking that you cat get it with -p8 :)
It doesn't compile on 6.x :/ (using unionfs6-p8.diff on a fresh RELENG_6)

Replace the line in the patch that says:

+ if (OFSFMT(vdp))


+ if (OFSFMT(dvp))

Ok, it compiled. New iso is at:

It seems better, I can log in and even startx. Further testing is coming :)
