Rescue/Install images do not contain dm-crypt module
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
Not sure if this is the right component, please move if not.
Neither the rescue nor the regular install images seem to contain the dm-crypt
kernel module. It should be contained as there may be encrypted partitions to
deal with (and the cryptsetup program is already in the images).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot current rescue environment
2. Try to use cryptsetup/load dm_crypt
No dm_crypt module, cryptsetup fails to work
Ability to use encrypted partitions
Added the module, although not loading it automatically as we don't really
support dm-crypt much at all
That's fine with me. Thanks.
I thought I heard something about at least encrypted swap support in FC6 (via
Err, could you add some crypto modules, too? I personally just need aes at the
moment, but some choice might be appropriate.
The problem is what set to add. Like you said, _you_ personally need aes.
Sorry, not going down this rathole.
Then you may as well remove dm-crypt (and cryptsetup) again, as they are pretty
useless without kernel crypto support.
