Description Gautam Ghare 2010-08-25 23:30:49 UTC
Description of problem:
When option 2 "verify and boot" is selected with the Live CD; the boot sequence attempts to mount luks encrypted partitions on the HDD. Selecting the first option allows booting without mounting encrypted partitions.

The user may want to delete the luks encrypted partitions and recreate new ones (with a new key) on a fresh install; and this should be possible without entering the correct pass phrase.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have at least one luks encrypted partition on the HDD
2. Select option 2: Verify and boot on the Live CD boot menu
Actual results:
Boot process requires entering a correct pass phrase for the encrypted partition

Expected results:
Allow booting (and possibly deleting of an encrypted partition) without entering a pass phrase

Not sure where this bug needs to go, but LiveCD is not the right component for it.

Comment 2 Charles R. Anderson 2010-11-28 15:16:22 UTC
Where do the syslinux.cfg paramaters for the LiveCD boot come from?  The Verify and Boot option needs to have the same rd_NO_LUKS etc. parameters as the regular boot has.  This problem still exists in F15/rawhide as of 2010-11-25.
