Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468936
No prompt for passphrase for LUKS disk encryption
Last modified: 2008-11-13 10:29:18 EST
Description of problem: When starting the system, there is no prompt to enter a passphrase to unlock the LUKS partition. The system appears to load (the white bar will go all the way across the screen) but will go no further.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 220.127.116.11-58.fc10.i686
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer
2. Use the 18.104.22.168-58.fc10.i686 kernel
Actual results: System attempts to load the system but fails.
Expected results: System should prompt for a passphrase to unlock the LUKS partition.
This bug is related to bug #468887.
I have this very problem, it appears the install hooks to make the initrd work aren't. The relevant kernel modules are not loaded and the plymouth passphrase/cryptsetup lines are missing from the initrd, as if the install process missed that the system is encrypted.
I think this has been fixed in the latest kernel release.
yes, problem seems to be fixed within the last update
