All paths within the file are / instead of paths to the files backing memory-mapped regions. This is causing issues in several different configurations. Fix: Revert the offending patch. Test Case: A simple reproducer can be found attached in lp1842382.sh. Regression Potential: This reverts to the previous behavior. Mounting overlayfs over shiftfs will not work until a fixed patch is applied. --- Using Lubuntu 19.10 daily 'live' : (later confirmed with Ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu too if `vlc` is added if not already present) From menu option, from pcmanfm-qt (trying to open an appropriate file), or from terminal I've been unable to start vlc. lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ vlc VLC media player 3.0.8 Vetinari (revision 3.0.8-0-gf350b6b5a7) lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ No crash reports are visible (/var/crash/ is empty) and I see no reason, but I cannot get vlc to play files, or open.
