Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504995
Encryption is ignored for some partitions
Last modified: 2009-08-20 11:20:55 EDT
Description of problem: User wants to encrypt just /home and swap which are on an LVM VG. When clicking 'Encrypt', the checkbox stays on, but no padlock appears for the /home partition. When installing, no encryption is applied to /home.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 KDE Live USB
Every time i've tried it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load up USB
2. Click on Installer
3. Set up Custom Layout as so:
First 200MB primary /boot partition, ext3, unencrypted
Remaining space (approx 150GB), LVM PV, unencrypted
20480 GB / ext4, unencrypted
2048 GB /usr/local, ext4, unencrypted
2048 GB /opt, ext4, unencrypted
4096 GB swap, swap, encrypted
40960 GB /home ext4, encrypted
Swap is encrypted, /home is not.
1) Encrypt /home
2) Tell me why /home is not being encrypted
Encrypting the entire LVM PV worked fine up until the installer crashed. Going to try to reproduce that, and see if another bug report needs to be filed.
Any comments what that blocker bug is? I'm not 'authorized' to see it.
Can you still reproduce this bug? If so, please attach the following logs:

It's just an internal tracking bug.
I tried to reproduce this on another machine, but i didn't quite get the same error. Nevertheless, the installation failed with an invalid device error. Here are the logs, though i don't see much usefull in them.
Since i can't reproduce the bug, feel free to close this if you need to.
