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.
Comment 4 Peter Reuschlein 2008-11-05 07:55:51 EST
