Encrypted Bodhi Installation drives me nuts.


I am totally annoyed. How can I install Bodhi encrypted WITHOUT using the complete harddrive?
I mean how can the installation procedure be so difficult? Even many years ago Linux ask to use what partition for what and did not just claim the complete SSD.

Options:

1. Install encrypted Bodhi? Possible, but complete SSD will be used.

2. Do partitioning yourself and install unencrypted? Possible but this I don't want. I know I could create an encrypted partition by hand but this has other disadvantages. System not encrypted etc.

3. Resize encrypted partition. I was not able to do this with geparted, did not matter if encrypted partition was mounted or not.

How can I solve this problem?

Hello there

Understand your mental state but do not blame Bodhi. We use ubiquity installer as standalone app. Frankly, I have never installed Bodhi on encrypted partition so no skill here. Anyway try to make some research across Internet with ubiquity related stuff.

Why not to start here:

Good luck

Stefan

FWIW, I recently had the same problem with the Debian installer. Is it the same as for Ubuntu?

Debian uses a different installer. One of reasons Jeff based Bodhi on Ubuntu instead of Debian was he was not satisfied with the debian installer and preferred Ubiquity. Now in theory Ubiquity could be made to work with debian, but I have never looked into it. Regardless I don't mind the debian installer and never had any problems using it.

I, like Štefan, have never installed Bodhi in a encrypted partition so i have no experience with the OP's issues. But ubiquity is the same installation program used by Ubuntu so I would expect whatever issues the OP is having would be the same in Ubuntu. And whatever information one can find online about these issues on Ubuntu would apply to Bodhi.

But before you call a piece of code 'retarded' please bear in mind that is open source and the code is there for you to fix if you don't like it. If you are unable to fix it, file an issue on your problem, but let's avoid insulting the code and the developers that worked hard to develop the software that you are using for FREE.

And for the record my gf's oldest son has Down's syndrome and the phrase 'retarded' is a little politically incorrect these days. Some people may take serious offence at that.
