bool "lvm2 & device mapper"
depends on BR2_LARGEFILE
This is LVM2, the rewrite of The Linux Logical Volume Manager.
LVM supports enterprise level volume management of disk and disk
subsystems by grouping arbitrary disks into volume groups. The total
capacity of volume groups can be allocated to logical volumes, which
are accessed as regular block devices.
The Linux Kernel Device Mapper is the LVM
(Linux Logical Volume Management) Team's implementation of a
minimalistic kernel-space driver that handles volume management,
while keeping knowledge of the underlying device layout in
user-space. This makes it useful for not only LVM, but EVMS,
software raid, and other drivers that create "virtual" block devices.
bool "install dmsetup only"
depends on BR2_PACKAGE_LVM2
Install dmsetup only and skip the LVM2 suite.
