Or, perhap equivalently, can a bootable root volume be named other than "root"?
While installing a new version of a Linux IS I created an lvm2 logical volume named "ub20-root" intended as a bootable root with near success. I had a line in
systemd-boot configuration file
systemd-boot is an simpler to configure alternative to
However, when trying to boot, an error message occurred stating that
crypt3--vg-root couldn't be found. I renamed the volume from
root, change the config line to
and it booted successfully.
I am unclear as to whether the constraint to name the volume
root originates from
systemd-boot or elsewhere. However, perusing various examples of creating lvm2 bootable root volumes, they are all named
root, even though
grub is the standard boot manager.
Another possibly equivalent question is - Is there a way to have multiple bootable root volumes on a single volume group? If not, why not?
