Full disk encryption using graphical installer
« on: 2020/02/07, 15:38:14 »


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?
There are 10 types of people, those who know binary and those who don't.

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.
