Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127183
install using dm-crypt device
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
For laptop users in particular, it would be really nice to be able to
have the / file system built on a dm-crypt device on the disk
partition where / would usually go. This would prevent anyone
stealing the laptop from being able to access any of the data (besides
the unencrypted /boot partition of course).
See the lengthy-ish fedora-devel-list thread about this...
The big problems really revolve around how the user interfaces with it.

OK, closing this as duplicate of 124789 then.
