# When testing changes, the easiest way to reload the theme is with /RELOAD.
# This reloads the configuration file too, so if you did any changes remember
# to /SAVE it first. Remember also that /SAVE overwrites the theme file with
# old data so keep backups :)
# The real text formats that irssi uses are the ones you can find with
# /FORMAT command. Back in the old days all the colors and texts were mixed
# up in those formats, and it was really hard to change the colors since you

. /etc/environment
lvcreate -l90%FREE -s -n rootsnap /dev/host/root
#XFS specific: Mounting ignoring uuid because the original volume has same uuid
mount -o ro,nouuid /dev/host/rootsnap /mnt/rootsnap
mount /backuptarget
