  1. Hi, Been wanting to try Funtoo for a while and made my first move last week. I've been running Arch on my desktop, laptop & Raspberry Pi for the past few years and have been tinkering around with Gentoo. I have a spare 20GB hdd, from an old xbox, I use for trying out new things and messing around. I used it to try an encrypted Arch install before doing the install on my SSD, all went smoothly and now I've got my ssd running an encrypted Arch install. The plan is to use the existing encrypted partitions on the 20GB xbox drive to try out Funtoo with a view to using it as my main OS on the SSD. I'm a bit lost with grub2, boot-update and encryption. Last time I used grub2 was when installing Gentoo on the same drive but that was before I was using encryption, it just worked first time and I forgot about it. Similarly with encrypted Arch bootctl just worked on the first attempt. So far the install appears to be fine working from a chroot, I've got a bare bones but functioning and updateble system with tmux, vim, elinks and a few others. I've been popping in and out of it for the past week.

Boot-update from Funtoo I've butchered and decided to stop and seek help, I figure I need a cryptdevice=....... or something. I started using UUID's and them went back to /dev/mapper...... cat /etc/boot.conf boot { generate grub default "Funtoo Linux genkernel" timeout 3 } "Funtoo Linux" { kernel bzImage[-v] } "Funtoo Linux genkernel" { kernel kernel[-v] initrd initramfs[-v] params += real_root=/dev/mapper/MyStorage-rootvol } I've not done anything with kernels yet as I was hoping to just run with the Debian kernel until I'm comfortable, I'm assuming it supports dm-crypt. My /etc/fstab is using UUID's but looks sound to me: cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1. # All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1. # # NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts. # # See the manpage fstab(5) for more information. # # <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass> UUID=935D-2E98 /boot vfat noauto,noatime 1 2 UUID=9bff32f9-906b-4ce2-8780-a9c82bc1de4d none swap sw 0 0 UUID=bc6a0249-4703-4efb-8ac3-66c81da58719 / ext4 noatime 0 1 UUID=d71e6b53-7d64-4d47-9200-fe9a0fea6cb9 /home ext4 defualts 0 0 i couldn't find anything on encypted partition in man boot-update and not sure if I should be using that or configuring grub2 manually. Any help or pointers is appreciated.
