mounting encrypted filesystems in rescue-cd
I hope, you can help me. I have the following problem:
I am running debian/testing and on my system I have 3 partitions, which are
encrypted. All partitions are luks encrypted. Of colurse I know the passwords.
These partitions are each mounted on /home, /usr and /var.
When I boot into the rescue mode of debian's installation cd, I cannot mount
these partitions. Even when I start a shell and want to do for example
"cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdX home" I get an error.
Maybe you can help here. Either I am doing something wrong (i.e. I have to
load some kernel modules manually) or these kernel modules are missinmg at
I need at least aes-x86_64, dm-crypt and dm-mod. AFAIK the module sha256 is no
more existent in the kernel.
Please enmlighten me, do I something wrong? If no, then please update the
installation CD to the necessary things.
Thank you very much!
Please direct any answer to my personal email-address or to debian-users, as I
