an idea by ismaell
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.
