Description postmodern 2010-05-08 02:26:46 UTC
Description of problem:
Initramfs images created by dracut attempt to enable *every* LUKS device before booting into the Fedora system. This includes devices *not* listed in /etc/crypttab, such as additional LUKS partitions or USB-key/SD-cards with LUKS partitions. The prefered behavior would be to only activate devices listed in /etc/crypttab, or use a specific device listed as a kernel-option passed to the initramfs by the boot-loader.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure /etc/crypttab only lists the devices needed to boot the system.
2. Re-create the initramfs image using dracut.
3. Have additional LUKS partitions, or insert a USB-key/SD-card containing LUKS partitions into the system.
4. Reboot the system.

Actual results:
Prompted for passwords to *every* LUKS partition.

Expected results:
Only prompted for passwords to LUKS partitions listed in /etc/crypttab, which are necessary to boot-up the system.
