Re: howto remote unlock encrypted root fs

There has been a nasty bug around for quite some time that made a lot of
users run flash-kernel manually to actually flash the new ramdisk (Martin
Michlmayr has written extensively about it on this list). I am not sure if
the bug is fixed or even if it affects your particular setup.

OTOH, since dropbear actually connects, your ramdisk seems to have been
flashed ok. But you can always try an extra flash-kernel if you haven't

I am loading the ramdisk and kernel from the usb drive. Is there a way to have dropbear "debugging" in the ramdisk. Spit some info to the console?

I have a Gurplug running Wheezy from a usb harddrive with an encrypted
root fs. No problems there. I am trying to get remote unlocking set up as
described in /usr/share/doc/cryptsetup/**README.remote.gz. Everything
seems to be working as described except dropbear will not accept publickey
authentication and ask for a password. The authorized_keys file contains
public keys that I know work. I read a bug report that plymouth was a
culpret causing this problem but I have no plymouth nor can I find it.
Maybe that is the problem. Here is the attempted login transcript
