Calamares encrypted install does not work
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am not sure if this is known already so decided to create a track.

If using this method of installation: the system won't boot:

If using direct installer, the encrypted installation does work, I get nice graphical prompt to enter my encryption key password.

Not sure if this could be the problem with coreboot.

Device: Librem 13 v1, sata disk.

@mak There's new version of kpmcore, perhaps it will solve this issue?

I made this work now, but there is a bunch of other changes I would like to do first, still.
(Like installing on an unencrypted /boot by default)

This is fixed in calamares >= 3.2~rc3-0pureos2 now, but will also require a rebuild of the live images to be in full effect.
For some reason, Calamares doesn't create a swap partition right now, I am currently investigating that behavior (and playing with the idea of using swapfiles instead of swap partitions).
Once that issue is dealt with, I will build new live ISO images.

@mak Great news!

At some point I would like to do a re-install following the instructions at -- what ticket can I now follow to hear when that is ready?
