Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192558
Enhancement for encrypted swap missing, patch attached
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:50 EDT
Description of problem:
FC5 currenty misses support for encrypted swap partitions
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attached you will find a simple but very useful patch to enhance
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to support encrypted swap partitions.
After applying the patch, following entry in /etc/fstab will result in setup of
LABEL=SWAPENC-sda2 swap-encrypted swap
dev=/dev/sda2,cipher=blowfish 0 0
BTW: rc.sysinit also misses support of encrypted partitions at all, I have also
a first patch for this, but this need some regressions before publishing.
