PMantis: this on an ubuntu or debian system?
21:00
<PMantis>
Ubuntu Edgy
21:01
<vagrantc>
is this an LTSP client install, or the machine itself?
21:01
<PMantis>
I edited the /etc/kernel-img.conf and got beyond that. but this is supposed to work with the
21:02
..with the "ramdisk = /usr/sbin/mkinitramfs" line.
21:02
vagrantc, The machine itself
21:03
<vagrantc>
you have initramfs-tools installed?
21:03
<PMantis>
yes
21:04
# update-initramfs -u ALL
21:04
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
21:04
Command failed
21:04
<vagrantc>
hmmm... shouldn't need the ramdisk line any more, i would think. at least, not with recent debian kernels.
21:04
<PMantis>
Well I'm trying to use a LUKS encrypted root fs
21:05
<vagrantc>
do you have /usr/sbin/mkinitramfs-kpkg ?
21:05
<PMantis>
yes
21:05
<vagrantc>
maybe point ramdisk to that, instead ...
21:06
<PMantis>
Still fails. :(

PMantis: you're trying to switch from an unencrypted root fs to an encrypted one?
21:08
<PMantis>
Basically.
21:08
Blank install right now...
21:08
Following: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedFilesystem
21:08
<vagrantc>
there's no support in the installer?
21:08
<PMantis>
Not that i saw.
21:09
i asked in #ubuntu several times, with multiple question formats.. no response
21:09* vagrantc forgets how long encypted suppor has been in debian-installer ...
21:10
<vagrantc>
migh no have been stable at the time edgy froze.
21:10
<PMantis>
heh dunno
21:11* vagrantc could use a few more t's
21:11
<PMantis>
t's ?
21:11
T1's ?
21:11
<vagrantc>
previous typos
21:11
<PMantis>
oh, lol
21:11J45p3r has quit IRC
21:12

well, if you tire of edgy's poor support for encrypted filesystems, you could try debian etch :)

works great :)
