Slackware-current (x86): Cannot run cryptsetup when usbboot.img booted

Hi Forum,

I am trying to make a network install of Slackware (x86) current, so I booted a relatively recent usbboot.img (kernel 4.19.66-smp). For the record, instead of writing it to an USB key, I booted it from grub - I, however, do not think that it matters.

After booting I can login as root.

Then, I would like to fully encrypt /dev/sda, so before doing anything (setting up swap and partitions) I want to run cryptsetup.

This fails with missing (and indeed, such an .so is not part of the initrd.img).

Is this a bug? If not, how can I achieve what I would like to do?

Thank you for any insight in advance.

A bit more information

FYI: if after booting usbboot.img and logging in I copy `' from the `cryptsetup-2.1.0-i586-1.txz' package to `/lib/' cryptsetup starts to work.

(I understand that should go probably to /usr/lib and properly symlinked, it was just a quick hack to check.)
