Re: [atomic-devel] Setting /usr to read-write?

Yup! You can just do:

  mount -o remount,rw /usr

It's a bind mount that happens on boot right before switch
root (see [1]).

Hmm, I'm not sure I follow. You should be able to write to
/etc just fine. The /usr read-only mount is not due to
UsrMove, but a result of using OSTree. :)

Notably, if /usr wasn't read-only, then you'd be able to
directly modify repository content (since the deployments
are done through hard links). See the OSTree docs[2] for
more info.
