Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 464220
/etc/crypttab is ignored
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:15:53 EDT
After updating to current Rawhide my boot was completely hosed. /etc/crypttab seems to be ignored now which caused mount to not find the home partition and so on. The result is an unbootable system. Which sucks big time.
Parsing of /etc/crypttab is afaik done by initscripts, there I reassign this bug.
What does your crypttab look like? Are you using plymouth?
This is my crypttab:
fedora-home-crypto /dev/fedora/home none luks,tries=5
Yes, plymouth was installed automatically for me but failed tragically too, see bug 464216.
If you're not booting with plymouth, it will fail. This is because (AFAIK) plymouth isn't optional. Have we enforced that completely in the initrd now?
his problem isn't initrd time, it's post / mounted, pre /usr mounted time
plymouth ask-for-password --command "cryptsetup luksOpen blah blah" is failing because /usr/lib/libply.so isn't available yet.
We could just mark this one a dupe of 464216. Really I thought we stopped supporting late /usr a couple of releases ago though.
