dm-crypted root with filesystem checking
To be more specific I followed http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...t_partition.3F
to install Slackware Linux 12.0 onto my thinkpad, its not so detailed but worked pretty well with hints from http://de.gentoo-wiki.com/DM-Crypt#R...chl.C3.BCsseln for building init.
Now booting into an encrypted system works until and beyond one error message:
*** ERROR: Root partition has already been mounted read-write. Cannot check! [...]
(this comes from /etc/rc.d/rc.S line 208 - 227)
If I boot my ram0 with read-only then booting fails because he needs to create stuff for cryptsetup and so one (I dont really know, but trial and error ...).
After luksOpen my init mounts /dev/mapper/root to /mnt I tried to put a -o ro flag in there but thats not what it wants ...
Has some one out there experience with stuff like that - any help is much appreciated!
Maybe you should read http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar...ADME_CRYPT.TXT first.
It's on your Slackware 12.0 install CD too.
I have to admit, I was not aware of that file (-:
Thank you I will see what I understand ...
Thats nice! I think it is remarkable how good encrypted root filesystem support in Slackware 12.0 is.
I used the the mentioned file README_CRYPT.TXT and I think everyone should read http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...lackware:setup for actually changes.
Everything works now really nicely but I was confused by the hints for your lilo.conf in Row 246. I think there is a typo in here:
