Hi,


I'm trying to reinstall Siduction on a system with some encrypted partitions.  The system has two physical partitions.  sda1 has /boot on it, and sda2 has a volume logical with 5 encrypted partitions.  After booting up Siduction installation, I proceed to make the partitions accessible as follows:
Code: [Select]
root@siduction:~# vgchange -a y

  1 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg" now active
root@siduction:~# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/mapper/vg-crypt vgc
Enter passphrase for /dev/mapper/vg-crypt:
root@siduction:~# vgchange -a y
  5 logical volume(s) in volume group "vgc" now active
  1 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg" now active


At this I launch the Calamares installer.  I go through the steps and pick "Manual partitioning."  When I get to the next step, I can only see two partitions sda1, and sda2 (LVM PV).  I need to specify mount points inside the volume group, but I'm not sure how to do this.  This used to be possible since I installed Siduction on this system many times in the past.


I can even mount this partitions if I want to as follows:

Code: [Select]
root@siduction:~# mkdir /mnt/sid
root@siduction:~# mount /dev/mapper/vgc-root /mnt/sid
root@siduction:~# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sid/boot


How can I make the installer see these partitions?  Or is the old installer available somewhere?  It used to work fine for me.

Anyone else running into this problem can use cli-installer until Calamares is up to speede on this.

Yes, cli-installer works fine.
