Summary: How to effectively disable noatime in the filesystem.
I wrote a script to build a playlist of oldest not played media files.
… easy if you use latest busybox tools, like a find that supports -atime etc…
… AND of course after you switch off noatime on the filesystem. Okay, I thought to do this by getting rid of the noatime option in
(Don't tell me why they have the noatime option present, I know. I accept the loss in performance.)
After reboot the mount command reflects this, noatime not present.
At first it seems to work. The moment I read a file, the atime shows updated, checked with
stat /opt/bin/ls -lu
But with the next reboot, these are gone, and atime equals old value, which equals mtime again.
Any idea? I would REALLY love this feature.
