Prompted for LUKS passphrase twice on startup
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Whenever booting up my PureOS installation with full-disk encryption, I'm prompted for the LUKS passphrase twice, even though I enter it correctly, and get a message at the top that says it was decrypted successfully. I looked for another open issue about this, but couldn't find one, so I'm opening it here. Feel free to close this ticket, if an open one already exists.

Interesting. Might be related to Calamares.

Description of what I noticed during installation:

  1. The check box is checked and the passphrase input box is visible (so far so good)
  2. I un-check the check box and the passphrase input box goes away but the check box remains checked (unexpected)
  3. I un-check the check box again, the passphrase input box does not show up but the check box is now unchecked

Noticed the same reproducible sequence of events in:

calamares 3.2.7-0pureos3

and

calamares 3.2.11-0pureos1

I'm not sure whether the 2 issues are related or not. I should have authored a new task and cross-referenced.
