RFE - Always assume global passphrase when unlocking encrypted volumes
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:48:23 EDT
Anaconda behaves differently than plymouth when prompting for a passphrase to unlock encrypted volumes. Plymouth, seems to have a more intuitive approach.
Instead of offering to remember the "Global passphase" when unlocking encrypted volumes, would we instead ...
1. Attempt to unlock encrypted volume using list of saved passwords (initially empty).
2. If not unlocked, prompt for passphrase
3. Save entered passphrase to internal list of passphrases
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for every encrypted volume encountered
I know bugzilla isn't the best place to have this discussion, I'll be happy to move this to a more appropriate location. Ideas/thoughts?
