I currently have Slackware 13.37 installed on my laptops hard disk using LUKS and LVM, as per the README_CRYPT.TXT. Given that I take the laptop to work, I need to have a way to secure my data in the event that my laptop is stolen.
I saw another thread about encrypting a hard disk here in the forms that turned into a discussion of the merits of hard disk encryption. I bought the laptop 2003. It has never had an OS installed without some form of encryption. I have three other computers at home, all have their hard drives encrypted. Losing the password is not an issue. The security of encryption outweighs any negligible performance loss I would encounter. (Two of the computers are running audio and video recording software).
I am interested in giving VL a try, but I need to be able to install it on an encrypted hard disk. Has anyone been able to successfully install VL on an encrypted disk with LVM and LUKS?
