Hi, all.

I have a problem with installing slackware on luks+lvm

I did everything like in README_CRYPT.TXT with one exception - i selected anubis, instead of aes for encryption.

But the system doesn't boot properly.
it starts, inits the framebuffer,etc...
asks for a passphrase but then

it says something like:

mount: not a directory
and gives me the shell.

in the shell i simply do

mount -o ro /dev/cryptvg/root /mnt

and the system boots normally.. but why do i have to do it on every boot?

Hi, I just tried this LUKS + LVM also. But I follow exactly what the readme said, so I don't have any problem at all...
