well i decided to go ahead with the install. I booted back into jaunty, ran ecryptfs-add-passphrase to make sure the right password was set then went back into the livecd installer. I mounted the previous home partition as home and selected "password required to decrypt and mount". I set the username and password to what it was before. Now unfortunately when I boot I get all sorts of errors, ctrl alt f1, login, ls ~ shows the access-your-private-data.desktop and readme.txt. I try to ecryptfs-mount-private and it says "ecrypted home not setup properly" or some such error and fails. FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU-
Someone with ecryptfs knowledge please tell me how I recover from this! I backed up /var/lib/ecryptfs from jaunty as well (dunno if that's needed or not because I clearly have no idea what i'm doing) HELP ME PLEASE!!!
edit: tried creating a new user to try to get some form of useable desktop but this one is encrypted as well and wont mount. So now I have a completely unusable system and all my personal data I cant get to
