Can't get encrypted root partition to boot using grub2view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I just tried a reinstall of Slackware 14.1 x64, encrypting my root partition along the way.

I tried following the Arch Linux guide to using grub2, doing the grub-install to the EFI partition and adding in thte extra lines for an encrypted root. (HowTos)

bad display resolution: invalid EDID, alternative fixview story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have an old Viewsonic monitor (VX1940w circa '08) and it does not properly pass EDID information to Linux (in this case F19). I saw previous write-ups outlining how to create a new Xorg.conf file. I was more interested in how the new Linux display infrastructure worked (KSM Kernel Mode Setting), and if you could use this.

Grub does not boot after kernel upgrade (secure boot disabled)view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, after performing a kernel upgrade, grub2 does not boot into Fedora 19 any more. I had installed FC19 with secure boot disabled. When I try to enable secure boot again from the BIOS, I probably wasn't able to sign either grub2 or the (new) kernel properly. I am requested "Select an X509 certificate to enroll". I can in fact still boot Win8 (both with and without secure boot), and (HowTos)

Installing grub-2.00 slackbuild, fails when it can't find man directoryview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I think it's failing when it tries to find /tmp/SBo/package-grub2/usr/man and prints this error: Code: find: `/tmp/SBo/package-grub2/usr/man': No such file or directory I'm guessing this is just the man page information, but it's not located there. I looked at /tmp/SBo/grub-2.00/docs and there's a man directory there, so I copied it to /tmp/SBo/package-grub2/usr. (HowTos)
