encrypted root file system on LVM

March 18th, 2009 by

openSUSE 11.1 doesn’t officially support an encrypted root file
system which also means YaST doesn’t allow to create such a setup.

By manually creating an encrypted partition and putting LVM into the
encrypted container it’s however possible to trick YaST into
accepting that as root file system.

Personal Note: Going on Paternity Leave

March 18th, 2009 by

Next weekend we’re celebrating the first birthday of our daughter and that’s also the start for my two months paternity leave from Novell – and the openSUSE project.  I’ll be back on the 22nd of May.

During that time I plan not to  read my emails and plan not to be active in the openSUSE project, so don’t count on me getting involved or expect me to do anything.

I’m basically on a long vacation and my primary focus will be taking care of Jonna Ylvi – and also recharging my batteries, taking photos etc.

I see a lot of good changes in the openSUSE  project currently and look forward to engaging  fully again soon.
