Description David Anderson 2007-08-01 13:33:34 UTC
Description of problem:
KDE can't handle LUKS volumes. You have to resort to using GNOME tools or the 
command line.

Code for KDE 3.5.7 is available here; it is already used in SUSE:

Please add it to Fedora's KDE! (Or get it submitted upstream if you can).

I have tested the patch mentioned in comment #1 that is used in SUSE, and it 
works fine for me.

Comment 2 David Anderson 2007-11-16 16:52:01 UTC
Any chance of getting this in? It's a shame that another Fedora has launched 
without it... but as the patch is tried and tested in other distributions (and 
in Fedora by people like me) I don't see why it couldn't come into the 
distribution before Fedora 9.

It's also KDE bug 113629, which has 552 votes - but has been there for 2 years 
without comment from the maintainer (apart from closing duplicates). It's #1 
useful daily missing feature from Fedora KDE for me.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 13:48:27 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-06-17 02:03:11 UTC
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
