Re: Running Debian GNU/Linux from an encrypted USB drive

Posted by: Avi Rozen on March 05, 2008 09:44 PM
This doesn't sound right at all... it should be /dev/sda5 (when installing encrypted partition + lvm), and the kopt and groot lines should definitely be there. I'd remove the "quiet" option from menu.lst, to see more info. You can also specify the crypt options on the kernel command line in menu.lst as follows: cryptopts=target=sda5_crypt,source=/dev/sda5,key=none,lvm=hostname-root (replace hostname with the hostname selected during installation). But I'm afraid that it looks like a reinstall is in order...
