Title: Full disk encryption using graphical installer
Post by: oneself on 2020/02/07, 15:38:14

Hi,

I'm trying to install Siduction with full disk encryption (required by my job).  I used the latest (current) release siduction 18.3.0 patience xfce.  I used the graphical installer to create a /boot/efi partition, a large root partition which I marked as encrypted, and a swap partition.  I then installed successfully.  When I try to boot up after installation, I get a prompt to put in my encryption password (as expected), I then get the grub menu, but after that I get an error saying
Code: [Select]
Volume group "luks" not found
Am I approaching this correctly?  Is there a better way to get full disk encryption to work?

The approach is correct, but there might be some things to do afterwards regarding the naming - maybe the better approach is to edit the calamares settings and enable the default encryption and do a standard installation - never tested it.
