Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212875
Gnome volume manager cannot mount LUKS disks
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:47:31 EST
Description of problem:
A LUKS encrypted external usb disk is inserted and GNOME asks for a password,
but is still unable to mount the volume. This worked previously in FC5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert encrypted volume
2.Enter volume password when prompted
Volume is never mounted. Clicking on the disk within gnome file manager will
once again prompt for the password without mounting.
The volume should be mounted and and icon created on the desktop.
running "cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda1 usbdisk" from the shell prompts for the
password, which then allows the volume to be mounted manually.
