jeremiah.foster added a comment to T717: Encrypted bootloader has lost graphical UI.

Can you paste a copy of you grub.cfg file? Either here or in a pastebin somewhere? That might help debugging the issue. You grub.cfg file likely won't have any secret info, just things like the command line to boot your system as well as the UUID of your disks.

Nope. Installing libcanberra-gtk-module and libcanberra-gtk0 doesn't help.

I can reproduce this. I also get a message "Gtk-Message: 09:43:04.539: Failed to load module 'canberra-gtk-module'" when I run this so perhaps the error is there.

In the grub package in Debian there was a configuration change that PureOS inherited. That change is the addition of an enabled display of the encryption password prompt. Can you check to see if there is a "GRUB_ENABLE_CRYPTODISK=y" line in/etc/default/grub ?

I think there are a number of extra packages in our default image. I hope to collect a list of those and winnow down our images to improve security by limiting surface area and to limit the amount of applications we have to support.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T541: GNOME Disks destroys disk encryption password when trying to change it.

What evidence is there that the password was "destroyed"? Is it possible that something else happened? I say this because the GNOME disks dialog is stating that there was an error changing the passphrase, it doesn't say that the password was changed or destroyed.

jeremiah.foster reopened T700: unspecified which installer is currently stable and released, and what versions of which packages it contains as "Open".

With regard to installers, it is unclear to me which installer is the default. This is relevant because I'm trying to diagnose a situation where the installer fails on disks that are 4 TB large. It looks like, from the files that show which packages are included in the ISO, that we also have a 'pureos-installer' and a 'pureos-live-installer' along with 'calamares' which appears to be an installer as well. I assume that pureos-installer is the default (and pureos-live-installer is just for GNOME Live?

Is there a link to the ISO? I'm planning on doing some testing of images so that we can measure 'reproducibility', knowing which image was used as the ISO for PureOS installation in this bug will serve as a good starting point. If this is no longer an issue, perhaps we close the issue?
