Re: [SOLVED] rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

Ok, so... this is a quick guide on how install Mint 18.3 without any unencrypted partition and using rEFInd in the ESP to boot your system. Pros: - Easier to mantain, - All the pros of a FDE installation. - rEFInd won't ask for Luks passphrase, so you will only need to insert it once, when the initr...

Re: rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

It worked! I finally managed to boot Mint in a VM, and then tested it on my machine, and it worked: I have a FDE Mint installation, whithout GRUB (never even installed it), using rEFInd and the kernel's efi stub. I had to modify the tutorial posted by lostfarmer in more than one point, but it gave m...

Re: rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

lostfarmer, you may be into something... linux-4.14.9.tar I think I can adapt the guide at the link you provided. Steps 1-3 are pointing in the right direction (except I would not create a bios partition, but use my ESP instead). Part 1 of Step 4 is fine, then I think i'll need to chroot into the sy...

Re: rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

Ok... first things first: I'm not dead. :D Sorry for the long delay, but I've been pretty busy with a new job last few months and had to suspend any "thinkering". Real life is complicated that way. Now, to the problem at hands. Still nothing has changed. I made another couple of tries in a VM, but i...

So does rEFInd. Since my ESP is the only non encrypted partition, that goes without saying :mrgreen:

Re: rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

uhm... then I may be missing something. The LVM stuff is identical to slackware: first use the shell to set it up and activate the vulumes, then run the installer. I'm ok with removing GRUB after the first boot, it's fine... ok, it may be something I did or the version of Mint I used, let me run ano...

Re: rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

There is a refind dedicated thread where Rod Smith hangs out in the Chat subforum. Try posting there. Thank you, i'll check it out. Direct stub loading via efi is a bit challenging with refind for non standard installs. I managed to get it to boot btrfs subvolumes directly to switch distros on the ...

[SOLVED] rEFInd + LVM on LUKS Installation

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum, so please excuse me if this post isn't perfect. I tried to search for an old topic addressing the issue, but couldn't find one so here I am. First things first: i'm typing from a laptop running Slackware64-current in dual boot with Win10. I use rEFInd to select the...

Hello World

Hi everyone, I'm a long time GNU/Linux user, a long time Slackware user to be precise. I don't mean to brag or anything, it's just a fact: i've been sitting comfortably in my Slackware powerd corner of the world for ...ahem... too many years now and, I love it. Even knowing how aggravating it can be...
