Description Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-01 08:52:16 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot current rescue environment
2. Try to use cryptsetup/load dm_crypt
Actual results:
No dm_crypt module, cryptsetup fails to work

Expected results:
Ability to use encrypted partitions

Added the module, although not loading it automatically as we don't really
support dm-crypt much at all
Comment 2 Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-02 04:12:16 EDT
That's fine with me. Thanks.

I thought I heard something about at least encrypted swap support in FC6 (via
Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-04 04:05:15 EDT
Err, could you add some crypto modules, too? I personally just need aes at the
moment, but some choice might be appropriate.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2006-10-04 11:33:08 EDT
The problem is what set to add.  Like you said, _you_ personally need aes.

Sorry, not going down this rathole.
Comment 5 Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-04 11:39:59 EDT
Then you may as well remove dm-crypt (and cryptsetup) again, as they are pretty
useless without kernel crypto support.
