Ok, now I am a bit confused. Why do I need the LVM root partition? Shouldn't I be using the luks one?
My original grub conf:
title Fedora (18.104.22.168-127.fc12.x86_64)
kernel /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-127.fc12.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/luks-7ad085ad-c93d-4e07-a420-775d8f2c3368

Maybe our encryption strategy differs.
I created the encrypted luks partition during the fedora installation. By the way, it was the first time I started using lvm. Before I had my partitions devided as described in the first post without lvm. After this didn't work, I reinstalled the whole thing and let fedora devide my harddrive automatically. sda2 became lvm-group, which had logical partitions: root, home and swap. Here I activated the encryption, however, only for root. home and swap were encrypted later. Was this maybe a mistake.
I am planing on reinstalling the whole thing and do following:
sda1 - primary (for /boot)
- sda3 (for root)
- sda4 (rest for /home)
- sda5 (for swap)
Next I encrypt sda3, sda4, sda5. After that I install Fedora 12.
OR should I just use the options offered during the installation and encrypt everything at once?
Thanks again :-)
