unable to boot new kernels from encrypted disk
Last modified: 2008-10-29 16:49:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Unable to boot the latest kernels when harddisk is encrypted. The system does not ask for a password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot the system on a machine that has an encrypted harddisk.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide 10 with encryption
2. install the new kernel
It looks like the boot process is going well (the progress bar goes to 100%). The login screen for the user account is not shown - the system gets stuck because the user was never prompted to enter the password to decrypt the disk.
I just tried the newest kernel that was released in rawhide (version 184.108.40.206-58.fc10.i686) and it has the same problem. I can only boot from 2.6.27-13.fc10.i686.
