Haven't tried. It makes no sense to me to union/null fs /var and /tmp. Just /usr/local to share binaries or /usr in case you also want to share OS binaries, but for a dedicated jail, the gain of that is minimal (OS upgrade doesn't require an extra installworld with jail DESTDIR, but mergemaster still needs to be done and requires most operator attention). -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
