I have setup all of my partitions on LVM thin-provisioned device. In some article I've read that this allows me to make incremental snapshots in a simple manner - move back and forward between them.
But I can't find any GUI or even user-friendly way to do so - the best I found is this article from 2012, but I'm afraid I may shoot my foot, trying to perform all these commands on my OS.
I'm using Fedora 20. Can anyone advise any convenient way - or better, GUI - to handle snapshots?
My setup is as follows (all partitions are encrypted, if it matters):
/dev/mapper/fedora-root / ext4 UUID=b0df5044-b83f-472f-a317-3c034a13790c /boot ext4 UUID=4D33-5A19 /boot/efi vfat /dev/mapper/fedora-home /home ext4 /dev/mapper/fedora-swap swap swap
Is it a dead technology? If so, what are the modern alternatives?
