  1. Hello, I've been having a bit of a time with this install. I have the whole root filesystem on an encrypted LVM group. When I boot, I'm prompted for the password and the luks container is decrypted, but only root an swap are mounted. I get errors about the other partitions, which cause the system to break, including portage. My fstab is as follows: # <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass> /dev/sdb1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2 UUID=7e35db9b-f5f7-4bb3-98e1-1466f56ed9b1
  2. Hi, I'm trying to boot an encrypted root filesystem off of a LUKS encrypted LVM table. The LUKS key is protected by a GPG key. I built an initramfs with dracut using both the crypt and crypt-gpg modules. The boot partition and key file are on a USB drive. When I boot, there is a kernel panic. I've tried adding the serial and console options to grub.cfg as well as the rd.shell option, but I can't seem to get Dracut to drop to a shell so I can troubleshoot the issue. Any help would be appreciated. Here is my grub.cfg set timeout=3 serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 terminal --timeout=5
  3. Thank you sputnik. Switching /etc/fstab to use UUIDs caused boot-update to succeed.
  4. Hi, I'm trying to follow the guide to install the root filesystem over encrypted LVM, which can be found here: http://www.funtoo.org/Rootfs_over_encrypted_lvm and have run into a bit of a hiccup with boot-update. I'm hoping someone can help me. I should state that I'm trying to boot the kernel off of a USB drive, which on my setup is /dev/sdb1. /dev/sda1 contiains the logical volumes including the rest of the OS and other mount points. When I run boot-update, I get the following errors. boot-update 1.6.11 / Copyright 2009-2012 Funtoo Technologies [use option "-l" for lice
