Project Description

The main goal is to enable the use of plain dm-crypt (as btrfs makes LVM2 unnecessary overhead) and a separate ephemeral key for the swap partition.

Currently openSUSE supports FDE using a couple of partitions like this:

Disk ├─EFI partition └─FDE partition (dm-crypt + lvm2) ├─root LV └─swap LV

But grub fails to configure correctly when the disk looks like:

Disk ├─EFI partition ├─FDE partition (dm-crypt) │ └─root LV └─FDE partition (dm-crypt with ephemeral key) └─swap LV

Goal for this Hackweek

Enable the grub2 package to configure/install grub2 correctly for this setup.

It would be nice to enable the installer to also support this setup in the future.
