I have asked the following question on fedora-list(a)redhat.com.
But then it clicked to me that I should have directed the question here on livecd list.
Is automounting of LVM volumes by a livecd dangerous?
<quote that I sent>
I have a question regarding the automounting of LVM volumes like it is the
default Fedora installation. Is there any way that it is harmful when done from a linux
For instance in Slax, Tomas Matejicek, the creator of slax has been encouraged by me and
others to implement it in Slax. I believe it is an excellent idea. I was wondering if
there are any downnsides to having this done in this livecd or any livecd for that
Thank you in advance for your input regarding this matter.
I have my own customized Fedora Live CD with TeXLive created by livecd tools. But I also
use Slax Linux Live CD and I like it very much. I know in advance that Fedora Live
CD's do not automount partitions nor activate swap. While on the other hand, Slax
automounts partitions if it can except LVM like default Fedora installations.
Here's Slax Forum thread in case it is relevant to the discussion.
Are there any dangers with respect to automounting LVM volumes by default?
Thank you in advanced,
