mounting / rescue encrypted volume


Yesterday i tried to upgrade to Karmic it went wrong and i ended up downloading the cd and installing it. my problem was that my home was encrypted under jaunty so it wasn't quite the simple step of installing the os and then mounting the home drive

at first my googling found nothing on how to mount the volume but eventually i found it

cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda3 sda3

so when i do that the volume pops up and i mount it and it works fine.

now i want it to automount as my home

when i installed Karmic i enabled encrypted home so i just figure i need to modify the crypt config file to point to the volume that i want and all should work? only problem is i cant find the config file that contains this information. i checked /etc/crypttab and /etc/cryptmount/cmtab and neither seem to contain the info

i have googled and cant find where this information is stored let alone if i can just modify the file to redirect to sda3

any ideas ?

You'll need to add an entry to /etc/crypttab, see 'man crypttab' for details,

cheers
