Looks like mkinitrd isn't calling 

cryptsetup luksOpen

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-28 10:57:28 EDT
just to be sure you're seeing the same thing as me, does downgrading mkinitrd and rebuilding your initrd fix your issue?
Comment 3 Tom London 2008-10-28 12:54:12 EDT

I reverted to mkinitrd-6.0.67-1.fc10.x86_64 (w/ nash, libbdevid-python) and installed kernel- from koji.

Boots/prompts for password just fine.
Comment 4 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-29 00:45:27 EDT
People who are effected by this and who are using encrypted raid partitions may want to look at bug 468955 for some other stuff that they will need to fix in the short run.
Comment 5 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-29 09:44:49 EDT
I have a question about the effects of reverting. I still see mkinitrd-6.0.68-1.fc10 tagged as dist-f10 and f10-final in koji. While mkinitrd-6.0.67-1.fc10 is tagged dist-f10. So it doesn't appear there is any information in koji that can be used to detect that the mkinitrd-6.0.68-1.fc10 version shouldn't be used. Is there some way I have missed?
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-29 10:04:04 EDT
I don't think we are planning to revert mkinitrd.  I believe the current plan is to fix mkinitrd and push a new build.
Comment 7 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-29 10:13:35 EDT
OK, that makes more sense. Between misreading this bug and perhaps misremembering a message on one of the Fedora lists, I thought something had already been done and was wondering why I didn't see a change.

Comment 10 David Lehman 2008-10-30 09:27:06 EDT
This should be fixed in mkinitrd-6.0.69.
Comment 11 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-30 11:52:38 EDT
I don't see it in Koji yet. Did something get missed or is there just some lag?
Comment 12 Charles R. Anderson 2008-10-30 12:46:28 EDT
I just tried a rawhide install today to an existing encrypted PV/VG into a new LV, no RAID involved, and I'm also missing the "cryptsetup" call in my initrd.
I'll test mkinitrd-6.0.69 as soon as a build is available.
Comment 13 Tom London 2008-10-30 14:24:45 EDT
I can verify that mkinitrd-6.0.69-1.fc10.x86_64 (from koji) fixes this.
Comment 14 Charles R. Anderson 2008-10-30 15:01:49 EDT
Verified copy of 6.0.69 from git works.
Comment 15 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-30 16:31:13 EDT
I tested this as well and it works for me.
