Hello everyone, I have been slowly but surely figuring out how this whole Mender thing works. I am currently in the process of converting a .img file after it has been created using dd. I am currently using a VMWare Ubuntu 22 virtual machine for this, but my end goal is to have this running on many desktop computers around the world, which will essentially work as servers.
I am confused on this specific step.
move overlay to the input folder
mkdir -p input/overlay
mv <PATH_TO_MY_OVERLAY>/* input/overlay/*
convert the image
First off, what is the overlay? I can’t find this mentioned anywhere else and am unsure what it is referring to.
–disk-image - This seems to just be the name of the disk image, simple enough.
–config - What would this be for a Debian based OS? I am not using Raspberry PIs in my setup at all.
–overlay input/rootfs_overlay_demo/ - I am confused on to what this is referring to.
My main question is figuring out what the overlay is. Could anyone guide me in the right direction? Thank you.
