Encryption - Installer needs more information and options
: When installing openSUSE via the installer you can't select [x]Encrypt Device for the system root partition and continue installing since it shows you an (
unclear ) error message
Encryption doesn't work with /boot (should be obvious) but it also doesn't work with / (the root partition) - which should work
the partition scheme was:
/ (root, primary, [x] encrypted) <--
when clicking on "next" at the bottom right it would say:
You have assigned an encrypted filesystem to a partition with one of the following mount points: "/", "/usr", "/boot", "/var". This is not possible. Change the mount point or use a nonloopbacked file system.
1.) so in that approach using an encrypted system partition wouldn't be possible -
2.) the "
right now would be at the previous screen:
select "LVM Based" and checking [x] Encrypt Volume Group
after that all partitions could be created
in that case the (automatic) partitioning scheme looked something like
/ Volume group
- ext4 / (root)
- ext4 /home
suggestions for improvement:
1.) make it possible to
selectively choose encryption for the individual partition (also the type, see #307523) and get the system installed;
2.) while selectively choosing encryption for each particular partition now doesn't work (1.) the error message or help function should at least refer to the possibility of selecting "LVM based" at the previous screen and there checking [Encrypt Volume Group] -
Talking about the error message: "
This is not possible. Change the mount point or use a nonloopbacked file system. " doesn't help anyone inexperienced ;)
