Calamares no LUKS?

Postby BoeroBoy » Mon Nov 02, 2015 13:18

After a lot of tinkering I've decided to do a fresh Sabayon install on one of my laptops. I see a lot of bugs are fixed in latest Calamares with 15.11. However one thing I notice is there's no classical Anaconda option to install with root LUKS encrypted.. That's kind of a show stopper for me on this laptop. Must I really build my own partitions with LUKS and then manually install with a chroot? I may as well go back to Gentoo and do a stage1 at that rate. Kind of frustrating.

Anyone else experience with LUKS and feature-crippled new-fangled calamares?
Thanks

Doesn't seem like it does yet according to - https://calamares.io/bugs/browse/CAL-256

I noticed calamares doesn't format btrfs partitions either, but you can install it to premade btrfs partitions.

I can't still understand why Sabayon has switched to this crappy installer. No encryption? You are kidding me! :evil: :evil: :evil:

With every new release I get more anger with Sabayon. This was such a nice distribution shortly before systemd was introduced. Then they started to mess it up by

[*]releasing unstable kde5
[*]mess up the installer
[*]Using sddm which crashed on all my ati laptops
[*]segfaults in libqt5
[*]freezing screen
[*]Network Manger usability GAU
[*]wrong lib links in binaries -> segfault

Is there a way to get encrypton? I would be determined to do this manually as well...

You can get some inspiration in the Arch Wiki: dm-crypt/Encrypting an entire system.

This wasn't my intention. I already did full disc encryption using gentoo with my own initramdisc and stuff but I was interested in how Sabayon is doing it. So that I don't get problems if an update comes around...

There must be an easy way as my other Sabayon boy that I upgraded to the current version still has full disc encryption. In the past there was the possibility to use full disc encryption by the installer...

You will need an ISO prior to 15.10.
The Argentinian mirror has not been updated for a while, so you can still find 15.02.1 there: http://mirrors.coopvgg.com.ar/sabayon/iso/monthly/.
If you manage to install it, the update will be a hustle, but you can try...

Unfortunately this version has a bug related to the X-server. So I'm not able to install anything as X won't come up. Which ISO was the last one with the installer before calamares?

15.09 I suppose.

@sabayonino: A working ISO with Anaconda installer is wanted ;) No need to fill bugs for outdated releases as 15.02.1.
