CentOS 7 for everything

I am probably never using lvm again. I have never not once actually benefited from its capabilities but this is probably the third or fourth time it has gotten in my way.

Issue is that I use the tools so rarely that I can’t recall what needs to be done to properly mount the drives on another system and finding that info on the web is becoming more difficult as the noise in search results increases, more and more results are damn youtube videos, and my eyes are deteriorating. So its just fixed ext4 for me in the future, KISS.

End of rant. PC mobo died. Most data I need from it backed up to github, few things done that day didn’t make the last commit and I’d rather not do them again.

Trying to mount drive on my laptop via USB interface. Which is easy when drives are plain old ext4 and not ext4 sitting on top lvm2.
