No idea what you are talking about, mate. Can you add some clarity to your inquiry? I'll close for now until you do. Thanks! --Maffblaster (talk) 08:24, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
Well, I've unsuccessfully spent several hours to figure out where to put the key to decrypt root LUKS partition on boot. No mention about it. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mlipocky (talkcontribs)
The genkernel initramfs expects the encryption key file to exist on an unencrypted device, such as a flash drive, using crypt_root_key= pointing to a file relative to the root of said device and crypt_root_keydev= as the device itself. (Optionally root_keydev_fstype= to load a file system module.) Also, please sign your comments in the future. --Grknight (talk) 21:35, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
