Package: live-initramfs
Severity: wishlist


Currently live-initramfs will look for hard-coded partitions labeled
"live-rw"/"home-rw", and files called "live-sn*"/"home-sn*" for
persistent and snapshot partitions or files.

This will cause problem when trying to run/test two or more
live-initramfs based distros on the same machine. Different
debian-live based distros need different persistent devices
(partitions or files) and contents. Configurable persistent device
names is the solution.

this feature request should be available since at least version 2.0~a1-1.

It is implementeed that way:

You could specify "persistent-subtext=subText" as live boot parameter in order 
to have live-boot (live-initramfs) to look for persistent and snapshot 
partitions or files labeled "live-rw-subText", "home-rw-subText", and files 
called "live-sn-subText*", "home-sn-subText*" for the snapshots.
