http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, after applying last kernel upgrade in my 11.2 I can't boot anymore. I have swap and home partitions encrypted but not root partition. The structure is: sda1: swap partition (encrypted) sda2: root partition (not encrypted) sda3: home partition (encrypted) This is what happens when I boot the system with this grub option (default): Code: title openSUSE 11.2     root (hd0,1)     kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31.8-0.1-default root=/dev/sda2    resume=/dev/sda1 splash=silent quiet showopts vga=0x317     initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.31.8-0.1-default 1. Grub boot shows all options ok and then splash screen starts, but stops 2 secs after and shows terminal 2. Term screen shows: Code: doing fast boot Creating device nodes with udev Only english keyboard layout supported Please ensure that the password is typed correctly Then the system asks the password for swap partition and I have to write using the english keyboard layout. The it asks the password for home partition but it previously shows an error: Code: Command failed: Can't open device /dev/mapper/cr_sda1 for exclusive read-only access. Anyway I write the password for /home partition but system doesn't mount it, so KDE shows an error because there's no home partition. The workaround I have found is going to Ctrl+Alt+F1 terminal, and running /etc/init.d/boot.crypto. Then all partitions are mounted and I can start the KDE session. Any ideas?
