Hi folks, I have just installed Ubuntu 8.04 from the Alternate CD, making a number of encrypted partitions in the process. All was fine on boot except for needing to type a password for each encrypted partition, so next stop was this page to automate it... http://howtoforge.com/automatically-unlock-luks-encrypted-drives-with-a-keyfile Step 3 kept failing with a "no Luks device" message. I tried numerous different paths for /dev/sdX but same problem each time. Then I opened a second terminal window and it did work. I completed the instructions but step 6 didn't seem to do anything and on reboot, I get multiple copies of this message... "Command failed: No key available with this passphrase" ...followed by a whole load of (one for each encrypted partition)... "No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/mapper/sdaX_crypt" 1) How can I revert the system to try the automation setup again? 2) If I want to move the keyfile onto a USB stick, what do I need to do? Thanks in advance for any help.
