Description Marian Ganisin 2012-05-15 08:45:45 EDT
Description of problem:

I run rescue mode on system with encrypted disk. I put passphrase into appropriate dialog and pressed <F12> for next screen. Anaconda asks for confirmation of skipping the passhprase.
Actual results:
<F12> Drives to skip passhprase

Expected results:
<F12> Unlocks the encrypted disk ideally just in case of entered passhprase
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2012-07-05 17:15:20 EDT
Does pressing OK instead of F12 work?
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2012-07-06 12:37:08 EDT
Figured that out for myself.  Patch posted upstream to address this issue.

Fixed on master as 682e5816cf38fdf641d8a9d89d2630009c07f67e
