Kubuntu 9.04 and Encrypted LVM
It seems to me that a lot of people are raving about Ubuntu, so I thought I would give it a try. However, I'm running into some serious issues just getting the thing installed. I'm trying to get an LUKS+LVM setup I was using under Slackware.
Using the standard disc, I can't even connect to the network out of the box. Once I load the needed packages for wicd from a flash drive, I can connect to the internet and install cryptsetup, lvm, etc.... However, when I get to the partition setup part of the install, the window gets set to some ridiculous size, much taller than my display. I can't use it and resizing doesn't help. On to alternate....
The alternate disc, however, is unable to even MOUNT the lvm volumes. I modprobed the same modules I used on the desktop disc, but cryptsetup returns "No key available with this password" I really REALLY don't want to use the installer to recreate the volumes because a: I want to choose the cipher, and b.) I don't feel that wiping the disc and installing over existing partitions is acceptable practice. There should be a way to use the existing partitions. If the install gets messed up, I want to be able to reinstall the OS and leave my data alone.
My question, basically, is how do I install Kubuntu 9.04 on LUKS+LVM? I don't care what disc I have to use. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
