Hi all,

I am newbee to UBIFS. I have some basic doubts on using UBIFS.

1. I read in UBIFS FAQ that it can not be used as NFS file system. I
am bit confuse with the statement.
Is it possible that I use UBIFS on one of Flash partition and at the
same time do NFS (root fs mount as NFS) boot. Is there any issue with

2. Can I use UBIFS with other Flash filesystem (like SquashFS-read
only) on other partition of same flash.

3. What will be better, keep using SquashFS(RO) or switch to UBIFS.

Thanks in advance.
