Of particular importance is kpartx which reads partition tables on specified device and create device maps over partitions segments detected. Unfortunately, kpartx as distributed fails if the specified device is not writable. This version opens the specified device read-only which makes it more usable when dealing with read-only evidence. This read-only change is the only change made to the latest distribution for each of Fedora 16-19, and CentOS/RHEL 5 and 6.
