Is this text, gui, or command line mode?

ks.cfg might end up being useful if you have it handy.

Here is the kickstart file that was used during the install.
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2008-09-17 09:50:27 EDT
Well you've got both text and cmdline in the kickstart file, and cmdline is last so that's what wins here.  It's true that the cmdline interface has no getLuksPassphrase dialog, and it's not going to be able to grow one since the entire point of the cmdline interface is that it's not at all interactive.

The best we can do to fix the traceback is to add a dummy getLuksPassphrase method that says "Can't ask a question in cmdline mode!" and quits, similar to how messageWindow works there.  Now as for solving the problem of how to get the passphrase for existing filesystems on cmdline installs, that's a question Dave will have to answer.
