LinuxMint 14 on a HP ProBook 6465b, /home is encrypted (luks)
Problem is, when booting I don't get a prompt asking for the key? Message on screen is "Disk drive not ready or not present".
I then press "M" for manual recovery, root password, mount /home manually and exit - voila, all is fine.
Of course I could keep doing this but it is pretty annoying, I do want to simply be asked for encryption key.
What I did was, I encrypted /home running LMDE, unfortunately LMDE had a few problems with my hardware (bluetooth & wlan), so I wiped it and installed Mint14.
I did not mount /home during installation so encryption wasn't set up at first, installed that manually.
And so, it works but problem is /home doesn't get mounted/unlocked at boot.
/dev/mapper/cryptHome /home ext4 defaults 1 2
cryptHome /dev/sda6 none luks
(It doesn't matter which line I use)
The 2 lines for mounting /home manually:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda6 cryptHome
