#4 Drop device-mapper from container images
Closed 4 years ago by zbyszek. Opened 4 years ago by zbyszek.

Anything related to "hardware", i.e. actual partitions and such, should not be present. We split out systemd-udev from the main systemd package a while back to reduce dependencies in containers.

It turns out that libdevmapper.so in device-mapper-libs calls out to udev, and udev has rules that call out to binaries in device-mapper, so both packages require each other and the split between d-m and d-m-l is only because of historical reasons.

I'll close this for now.
