Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1471240
timed out wainting for device dev-mapper-luks\[funny\letters].device
Last modified: 2017-08-15 05:16:50 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm unable to mount encrypted /home partition at boot time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Rawhide with lastest updates on 14th July 2017.
Always, at boot time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a PC with encrypted partitions
2. wait for luks password prompt
3. be able to boot only in emergency mode
I can login as root and mount partition manually:
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5/ crypthome
# mount /dev/mapper/crypthome /mnt/somedir
All the data is here, but for some reason it can't mount as a /home at boot time.
I read some journalctl and it mentions those errors:
Timed out wainting for device dev-mapper-luks\[funny\letters].device
deendency failed for File System Check on /dev/mapper/luks-[funny-letters]
home.mount: Job home.mount/start failed with result 'dependency'
I have very little experience with encryption, so I don't know where to look next. I'll be thankful for some guides.
I have exactly the same issue with my Fedora Rawhide after a update the 14th July...
Issue is goe after another set of update (kernel + systemd)

Those sneaky kernels. :) Thanks for the info. Thanks for the patches and updates, too.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
