can't unlock disk on reboot after clean install
I installed Debian 10 RC1 in a QEMU/KVM virtual machine on my Fedora 29
laptop using 'Virtual Machine Manager' -- I overwrote a
previously-working Debian 9 test VM.
I installed from debian-buster-DI-rc1-amd64-netinst.iso. I chose the
first listed kernel (which had a number defining it, 4.18.something,
not the second choice which had no numerical designation). I used the
partitioner and accepted defaults to create encrypted LVM setup (boot
is not encrypted, only / and swap on the encrypted LVM). After
finishing the install I rebooted the newly-installed system which shows
grub and boots to the prompt to unlock the disk -- but it will not
If I drop to a shell I can test the keyboard map is correct -- I'm
typing the right characters.
If I boot gparted-live ISO I am able to unlock the encrypted disk that
the Debian 10 RC1 installer created using the expected password!
Is there any test you'd like me to try? Or more info I can provide? I
am doubting myself because clearly many people would have tested this
scenario -- yet it does not seem to be a known issue.
