Hi all,

I am using cryptsetup (LUKS) successfully on most of my partitions (i.e.
not /boot) and external disk drives.

For the external drives, HALD recognises the LUKS encrypted partition
and prompts for a password.

Does anybody know where I can configure the system such that the
external disk is automatically decrypted with encryption keys and

In Gnome the password dialog gives a user 3 options for the password:
- forget immediately
- remember till logout
- remember 'forever'

Debian sid. I don't know what do you use - any window manager? I believe KDE has a similar option.

Kind regards,
