I would like to install my Debian system into an encrypted root.
This is the partition scheme:
- hdb1: 128 MiB, ext2, /boot
- hdb2: 2 GiB, swap
- hdb3: remaining GiBs, dm-crypt/luks with inside the root partition
formatted as ext3.
The debian installer of Lenny refuses to use the encrypted partitions
as / and so it's impossible to continue with installation.
No problems with the installer of Etch.
See attached images for more details.
