Bug#656135: Add findiso boot parametre
El 09/04/12 19:28, Daniel Baumann escribiÃ³:
what i don't get is why the thing is mounted in /root/live/$whatever in
the first place if it is unmounted their afterwards anyway.
or in other words: there should be nothing interfering with /root/*
unless it's staying there after the initramfs->real-system switch, so
the temporary mounting should be somewhere in initramfs, like
/live/$whatever that it was (in parts) before.
..or am i missing something?
As I understand it myself:
It's only unmounted afterwards if you're using the TORAM option.
You need to mount it in the first place so that you can access the
iso contents and copy them to RAM.
Once the content is copied to the RAM the iso is unmounted so, as its
explained in a comment in the code, you can fsck the underlying device
(Which I suppose gets umounted later, haven't checked that).
