Using the fine instructions at http://news.softpedia.com/news/Encry...10-68383.shtml
I installed Ubuntu 7.10 from the "alternate" CD onto an encrypted LVM. I used the entire 80 GB SATA drive. The install went fine as far as I could tell. The system will not boot normally - nothing.
If I select Recovery Mode it seems to boot fine up to the point of loading v2.6:HID core driver. If I press <Enter> at that point I am prompted for the pass phrase. It is accepted and I get to a command prompt as root. If I "exit" the GUI will load and I am able to login with the user credentials which I specified during the install. It seems to work after my user account logs in however I have not done much testing.
I have gone through the complete install 3 times - same result. I verified the media - OK. I installed without encryption from the same CD and the install boots just fine. Any ideas/suggestions?
The hardware is:
Dell Dimension 4600
Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
1.5 GB RAM
80 GB Seagate Barracuda SATA drive
Mouse and keyboard are PS2 connected - not USB
Video is Intel onboard graphics
I have installed/run Ubuntu 7.10, 6.x, Kubuntu, Fedora Core 3 - 7, Red Hat 8.x - RHEL 3, Knoppix, Windows NT 4, 2K, XP home & pro, Vista on this hardware over the years - all with no problem. I am at a loss.
