Ubuntu 11.04 encrypted LVM password not working after user login password change
 
I installed UBUNTU using encrypted(full partition) LVM .. like in the link below:

http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/05/10...m-file-system/

When I boot it prompts me for a pass phrase to decrypt and then loads ubuntu, and it was working fine till I changed the user login password.

After changing the user login password I rebooted and now my de-crypt passphrase is not working (Ques: Is changing user login password can really be a reason ?)

Any inputs on how can I recover the password (decrypt passphrase), as the de-crypt pass phrase will not even let me login into the recover console.
