Description Christoph Maser 2009-07-04 16:54:29 EDT
It would be really nice if one could use lvm snapshots for chroot environment. That way init would only consist of mounting a given lvm with a named snapshot. This should be even faster than using tmpfs.
Comment 1 Clark Williams 2009-07-05 10:39:02 EDT
How would you create the LVM snapshots? Through a mock interface or through the lvm tools?
Comment 2 Michael Simacek 2014-10-16 11:24:40 EDT
LVM backend is implemented as a mock plugin distributed as separate subpackage mock-lvm. Currently available in rawhide only.
