Disable automount on LiveCDs

Feature state

Rejected Information
Evaluation By Projectmanager


When repartitioning HDD, automount can hurt. The same when installing system.

At least for partitioners and installers "lifetime", automount should be disabled.

Christoph, does this address a real issue?

I find automount of Live CDs often useful, and it is optional on KDE4 at least, with possibility to "Do Nothing" present.  If the Live CD is running currently, then /etc/mtab is in memory not on hard disk, so I don't see the harm in it, nor from an NFS client automount possibilities.

Does the requester mean something like USB storage device being inserted can change Device names in some way that can confuse an installation?

I mean automounting HDD partitions is making partitioning not easy.

As I wanted to repartition the HDD, GNOME was mounting them everytime I wanted to edit them.

That's why I'd prefer automount disabled.

On KDE LiveCD the problem doesn't exist in default configuration.
