Autodetect home
« on: July 30, 2010, 04:20:08 AM »
Hi!

It would be nice if TC could autodetect a persistent home during boot the same way it detects tce-drives. Is there a way to do this in current? If not, consider it a feature request. :)

Regards

Would do more harm than good IMO.

Consider that many of our users run several distros, it's often wanted that TC doesn't touch the HD unless told to. Scanning for /home would bring a lot of false positives.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

At least any present /home/tc directory could be detected (autodetect could be turned off with a boot option).

Is there a way to use an autodetected tce as home?

Why force the majority of users add a boot option to turn it off, when the minority can use a boot option to set home?

I my mind it would be a good feature, but I might be wrong. If it is bad for the majority then just ignore it.
